Servicing niche markets

There are countless logistic companies. So, in order to be successful as a medium size logistics provider in China, you need two things: a clear business plan, and a market niche – knows Glenn Bai, Managing Director Militzer & Münch China.


With exports of about 2.26 trillion USD, China was export world champion in 2017. For Militzer & Münch, this upward tendency of Chinese economy offers new opportunities. Due to the constantly growing e-commerce sector, Militzer & Münch transports increasing volumes of goods from China to Central Asia, Russia and Europe.


Militzer & Münch China is constantly extending its product portfolio to meet the customers’ requirements. The latest addition: an LCL consolidation box service via rail from Duisburg to Wuhan.


“We’ve come a pretty long way”

Wojciech Łyżwiński has been with Militzer & Münch Poland for more than a quarter-century. This year will be his last as Managing Director of M&M air sea cargo S.A. In this interview he speaks about his journey with Militzer & Münch: the challenges, the achievements, and the future.


Every millimeter counts

Two days to send a complete packaging system from Schwäbisch Hall in South Germany to Dammam, Saudi Arabia – via airfreight, not really a big deal. And still, at the end of the day, every millimeter counted. Whether or not the out-of-gauge cargo was going to fit into the airplane was revealed only shortly before departure.


New country organization in Sri Lanka

Back in 2015, Militzer & Münch started operating in Sri Lanka via a delegation office. The local team witnesses the growing importance of the country as a logistics location – a good reason to found a country unit here.


Metal roof tiles – from Poland to the USA

An entire roof on one pallet? No problem for a roof tile manufacturer in Poland. His products are also in demand in the USA. Militzer & Münch Poland guarantees that the innovative roof tiles arrive reliably.


Militzer & Münch benefits from Uzbek investments

Uzbekistan is one of the biggest cotton fiber producers worldwide and has been investing in its textile and garment industry for some years. Militzer & Münch and its customers also benefit from these investments.


Militzer & Münch grows in Germany

Including the new branch in the Ruhr district, the Militzer & Münch network now comprises 16 locations across Germany, thus covering the important logistics regions in the country. And there are plans for further growth.


More services with the Rail Competence Center

For all rail transports between Europe and China, the new Militzer & Münch Rail Competence Center (RCC) is not only an important interface to the customer, but also to all country units.

Michael Spitzlei and his team are working from Dusseldorf, Germany. The advantages of the RCC are obvious: Militzer & Münch customers profit from the many years of experience the team combines.
