The Rhenus Group is one of Europe's leading logistics service companies with a turnover of US$4 billion. Rhenus has business locations at 350 sites and employs 24,000 people.

The current shareholders LKW WALTER, Hupac, Le Jeune Capital Partners, Bertschi and MSC will continue to maintain their holdings in Crossrail AG. The company headquarters, the management team and the firm’s name will remain unchanged.
