"We are able to react to a crisis fast and appropriately"

Alexei Kovalenko, Guillaume de Laage de Meux and Nikolaus Kohler – as members of the Group Management of M&M Militzer & Münch International Holding AG, they have a close eye on the business of the individual country units.


In an interview, they report on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the group so far, and how the demand for transport is developing in different industries.
