On 1 April 2017, Dockx Group and Rhenus Office Systems embarked on a joint venture to further commercialise archive storage on the Belgian market. A new company has been created for these activities: Dockx Rhenus Archisafe nv. Current physical archive storage services will be professionalised further under the Dockx Rhenus brand, and a user-friendly online platform will be developed in future.
“Rhenus and Dockx Group complement each other perfectly. Rhenus’ experience as an international specialist in information and document logistics and the strength of the Dockx brand on the Belgian logistics market form a unique combination for the further development of physical archive storage and document management”, according to Wilfried Dockx, Managing Director of Dockx Rhenus Archisafe.
“We have found a partner who is a family business, just like Rhenus, and who is genuinely interested in the wide range of services around document management and archive storage. The needs of our customers and the provision of solution-focused services are central to what both partners do, and that is especially significant considering the future importance of information and document logistics”, Gerrit Merten, Managing Director of Dockx Rhenus Archisafe, explains. Rhenus Office Systems handles more than 15 billion documents in archive storage worldwide. The company provides document management services to over 15,000 business customers, and is responsible for 1.5 million container movements annually.
