Militzer & Münch Expands Network in Africa

The Militzer & Münch team is analyzing and developing new trade lanes in Africa. Local agents are giving support. Two countries have been defined already for new activities.


For many years, Militzer & Münch has been active in Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. In some emerging markets south of the Maghreb region, Militzer & Münch is seeing big potential, too, in view of economic growth. Recently, the Militzer & Münch Group began intensifying relations with these countries.


“We Are the Experts for Difficult Markets”

The Militzer & Münch Group aims to continue on its growth path in the coming years. In an interview, Alexei Kovalenko, member of the Militzer & Münch Group Management, explains where the biggest growth potential lies.


“We Want to Be the Market Leader Two Years From Now”

In an interview, Filip Simovic and Nikola Vasiljevic, the Managing Directors of Militzer & Münch Serbia, talk about their ambitious growth plans. In October 2019, Militzer & Münch founded the joint venture with Serbian logistics company Invictus System Transport & Logistics D.O.O. to further develop its network in the Balkans.


140 Years of Militzer & Münch

In 1880, Richard Militzer and Werner Münch merged their forwarding companies and founded the Militzer & Münch rail forwarding company in Hof, Bavaria. In the course of the years, the company developed into a worldwide operating logistics services provider with about 2,100 employees today. On 1 April 2020, Militzer & Münch celebrate their 140-year anniversary.


Express delivery for the aviation industry

In the aviation industry, spare parts supply is a key factor for efficiency. Militzer & Münch China has specialized in a highly critical segment of spare parts availability: “Aircraft on Ground” (AOG).


Freshly Polished

How do online retailers get the goods they sell? One of the largest international e-commerce corporations orders shoe polish, brushes and insoles from a popular Polish manufacturer – and Militzer & Münch was contracted to get the products across the Atlantic.


For Coffee Lovers

Coffee is popular in Poland, and has become an export hit, too: After years of successful cooperation, one of the largest Polish coffee producers has opted for Militzer & Münch as his sole transport service provider.


Cell Phones in Flight Mode

Cell phones are regarded as dangerous goods – because of their batteries. This and more factors have to be taken into consideration when cell phones are transported via airfreight. No problem for Militzer & Münch: the Chinese unit handles time-sensitive international transports for a leading cell phone manufacturer.


M&M Strengthens Position in Maghreb Region

A new location for automotive services in Morocco, a new groupage line from France to Bejaïa in Algeria – Militzer & Münch continues expanding operations in the Maghreb countries.


A Happy Encounter

At the right place at the right time: at a trade fair, an importer of Chinese laser cutting machines met Barbara Zablocka from Militzer & Münch – in the meantime, he has transported, with her help, already his 25th delivery to Poland.
