History

Pioneering spirit, vision and courage

The founders of Militzer & Münch showed pioneering spirit when they laid the basis of the company with rail transports more than 140 years ago. The same applies to the experts of Militzer & Münch who developed the air freight business in the middle of the last century, and in the following decades, established groupage transports by rail and truck to the Middle East.

As early as in the 1930s, Militzer & Münch became the freight agent of major ocean carriers and airlines. In 1949, Militzer & Münch was appointed official IATA agent. This was followed by the opening of new branches, which were crucial for the expansion of the air and sea freight business, such as the branch office in Hamburg and the first air freight center at Frankfurt Airport, which Militzer & Münch opened in 1962.

Militzer & Münch was among the first logistics companies to venture into the emerging markets of Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and China for its customers, and to successfully establish its services there. Today, with undiminished enthusiasm, Militzer & Münch continues expanding its service portfolio, and ventures into new domains of logistics.
