The Militzer & Münch Group
A company that connects worlds.
We are where you need us. Our employees always find the right solution for your order. With our individual logistics services, we are on the move for you by road, air, rail and water. We see ourselves as specialists for demanding markets: Challenging multimodal projects are a matter of course for us. Militzer & Münch is actively involved in strategic alliances and cooperation agreements, and is constantly developing to offer its customers innovative logistics solutions.
Over the past century, the small forwarding company founded by Richard Militzer and Werner Münch in Bavaria in 1880 has grown into a logistics group that connects worlds: with committed employees, many years of experience, regional expertise, and the courage to keep breaking new ground.
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.
