More than 9,000 kilometers from Brazil to Poland: in summer, Militzer & Münch Poland coordinated the transport of machinery for a new paper factory. This marked another step in the cooperation with the customer, one of Brazil’s leading manufacturers of machinery for the paper industry.
The Polish Militzer & Münch team handled the door-to-door transport from the manufacturer’s plant in Brazil to the factory of a leading Polish paper product manufacturer in collaboration with long-time Brazilian logistics partner Pirâmide SeaAir. The print cylinders, steel frames and screens are part of a production line for the new paper factory. The factory produces, among others, greeting cards, children’s coloring books and paper gift bags.
Apart from the transport, the Militzer & Münch team and their Brazilian logistics partner did the customs clearance and coordinated the loading and lashing of the bulky goods. In Mid-June, the 18 containers – 40-footers as well as flat racks – reached Gdansk safe and in time.
“We are happy that the customer chose us for the project.”

Thanks to the new road department in Warsaw, Militzer & Münch also delivered 15 additional full truck loads with machinery and parts within two days from Slovakia and Italy to the building site at Iława.
“We are happy that the customer chose us for the project”, says Artur Wojtczak, Business Development Manager M&M air sea cargo S.A., Warsaw. “I’m sure our experience, the short transit times and the high safety and security standards we guarantee have played a role there, too.” Militzer & Münch Poland already handled several projects for the manufacturer in recent years. With the heavy lift transport from Rio do Sul to Iława, Militzer & Münch Poland successfully continues its cooperation with the Brazilian company.
