2004: Pirmasens

MBS continued down the route of expanding geographical coverage within Germany to extend and improve our service offer to customers. In 2004 the company opened a branch in the Rhineland-Pfalz town of Pirmasens.

2003: Portugal

Initial growth within Germany then turned into the globalisation philosophy which informs the MBS Group today. The first international branch – in Portugal – was opened in the same year as the Cologne Logistics Centre. Porlogis Trânsitos e Logística (Lda.) was formed with the participation of MBS. This enabled traffic to Portugal to expand, and Porlogis to be profitably integrated into the MBS network.

2001 to 2003: Dusseldorf and Cologne

By 2001 we had reached another turning point: the success of the company and its constant growth demanded more extensive expansion measures: after opening a branch in Dusseldorf in 2001, MBS built a logistics centre in Cologne at the end of 2003. Over a surface area of 22,000 m², a warehouse with high-bay storage for 14,000 pallet spaces and a transshipment warehouse covering 5,000 m² were created. The warehouse, with its 21 ramp gates operates 24/7. The office area, which covers 2,800 m², benefits from high-tech equipment, including a fibre optic cable network. The new building project in Cologne: the largest investment by the MBS-Group to date.

1998: Frankfurt

The history of MBS’ development continued apace: at the end of 1998, the company opened a site which was to prove crucial to the development of our business: Kelsterbach, close to Frankfurt Airport. A strategically important step: proximity to Frankfurt Rhine-Main Airport has enabled us to offer our customers even more efficient service.
