Dear Team,

Spring is in full swing, and as we move into the warmer months, it’s an exciting time for new initiatives at MBS. We’re pleased to share with you the second edition of our employee newsletter this year, filled with updates and stories from various branches.

In line with this fresh momentum, we’ve been actively enhancing different aspects of our business and market presence. As part of these efforts, we’re excited to announce a refresh to our corporate identity. The updated design, which can be found below, features more vibrant colors and a sleek, rounded shape. These changes reflect our commitment to innovation and staying ahead in a dynamic marketplace. Additionally, we recently unveiled a new brand for our Anytime time-critical logistics product.

Furthermore, we’ve been diligently optimising our internal organisation and implementing a new structure for our finance department.

Meanwhile, across our local offices, our teams have been hard at work bringing projects to fruition and have participated in numerous notable events. As always, in this edition, we’re also excited to welcome the new faces to our team and highlight individual milestones.

If you have other news you’d like to share with your colleagues or suggestions for content, reach out to Katharina Frings at communication@mbslogistics.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

Warm regards,

Daniel Steckel and Joerg Roehl

You can already see this new logo in action on our social media channels. To ensure a seamless transition, employees will be provided with updated corporate logo files by their local managers.

A few months ago, we introduced a new brand identity for Anytime. Brighter, bolder and more dynamic, the new brand reflects the Anytime team’s undying energy, dedication to every transport and vision for the future.

This isn’t just a fresh coat of paint; it’s a reflection of the Anytime team’s commitment to constant innovation and customer satisfaction. If you haven’t seen it already, check out our launch video!
