A successful team effort

In a close and highly successful cooperation, the Militzer & Münch teams in China and Poland handled a xylitol transport.

Chewing gum, sweets, and tooth paste – three totally different items. And yet, they have one thing in common: they can all contain xylitol. In June, Militzer & Münch transported this food additive from Dezhou in China to Poznań in Poland. For this project, the staff of Militzer & Münch in China arranged the road and rail transport from Dezhou to Malaszewicze, the central rail trans-shipment hub in Poland. The longest part of the journey was done by rail: the 25 sealed containers were transported on board seven trains. In Malaszewicze the team of Militzer & Münch Poland took over. The bonded containers were hauled to the destination in Poznań by road. “We developed a highly effective, multi-modal transport chain for this project”, says Glenn Bai, Managing Director Militzer & Münch China. “A combination of road and rail transports is optimal for the leg between China and Poland. Thus, the transit time was only 20 days.”
