New name for Krems port

The Danube port of Krems has changed its name from Mierka Beteiligungs GmbH to Rhenus Beteiligungs GmbH and other Mierka subsidiaries have also been renamed

The reason for the changes at the Danube River port is the departure of Hubert Mierka as the managing partner of Mierka Beteiligungs (MBG) in the spring of next year. Rhenus currently has a 51% holding in the company. Provided that the competition authorities agree to the change, the remaining shares will be acquired in February 2018.

Rhenus Board Member Michael Viefers will take over the position of managing director of the newly-named Rhenus Beteiligungs (RBG) following the departure of Mr. Mierka. Some of the subsidiaries have also received new names as part of changing the name of MBG to RBG. Mierka Donauhafen Krems is now known as Rhenus Donauhafen Krems. Rhenus Mierka Danube Shipping has been renamed Rhenus Danube Shipping. Rhenus Logistics Austria, however, is retaining its name.

“The Rhenus Group is a family business that’s very aware of its values; it represents tradition, continuity and reliability like us and offers innovative, customer-oriented logistics solutions,” said Hubert Mierka, Managing Partner of RBG. "By working together, we’ve achieved a great deal with commitment and investments during the past few years and have paved the way for a positive future. That makes it much easier for me to leave the company as its partner during the next few months.”

Michael Viefer said: “We’ve been working with Hubert Mierka in an extremely partner-like and successful manner for many years. I’m all the more delighted by the trust that Hubert Mierka is placing in us. The other managers of RBG are Patrick Schäffer and Cornelia Urach.

Michael Appelhans, who is responsible for the seaports and inland waterway ports within Rhenus, is taking on the role of managing director of Rhenus Donauhafen Krems alongside Gerhard Gussmagg. “The Danube region is a dynamic business area with a great deal of development potential, particularly in the multimodal sphere. We can integrate the Danube port of Krems in our existing broad network of ports for our customers in a beneficial manner,” said Michael Appelhans.

Rhenus added in a statement: “Mierka Donauhafen Krems has registered significant growth in the volume of goods that it has handled during the course of this year in comparison with 2016; Rhenus Mierka Danube Shipping has successfully increased its portfolio of customers and products and Rhenus Logistics Austria is expanding with customer-oriented, multimodal logistics solutions.”
