New service to Oran
Militzer&Münch (M&M) has launched a new groupage service to Oran, a year after the service provider opened a branch office in Algeria. Oran, 430 km west of Algiers, is the country's second largest city.
The port city is a major centre for the automobile industry. Renault and Volkswagen are already active, and Peugeot is currently building a factory there. From mid September, M&M will operate a direct, twice monthly connection from Marseille (France) to Oran, with a five day transit time. The company’s branch in Marseille manages the preparation and transport to Oran. The new service is also licenced for transporting hazardous goods.
Algeria is a growth market for M&M. The logistics provider registered 300% growth in the Maghreb state over the last four years. (mw)
