The Morocco team cooperates closely with Militzer & Münch France – M&M France is registered with the major European automotive manufacturers as logistics service provider and offers such services also in France. “Militzer & Münch France owes its position as market leader on the Europe-Maghreb trade lane to good cooperation with its country units”, says Guillaume de Laage de Meux, Managing Director Militzer & Münch France and Regional Managing Director South West Europe / Maghreb. “The opening of the new location is the most recent example of our cooperation with Militzer & Münch Morocco. Strengthening our position in the field of aviation and automotive logistics is part of our strategy.”
