What do they want to send?

Letters and parcels

Companies need to send and receive goods and documents reliably. This is particularly true for online retailers (B2C), who send parcels and packages in shipping in Germany and have to meet ever higher customer expectations.

And the letter also remains important despite e-mail and digital communication. Whether as business mail or mass mailings - offline dialog marketing can successfully set impulses in direct marketing.

MBE offers you the right services to meet these requirements. Reliability and discretion are always in the foreground. The services in letter and parcel shipping within Germany and internationally are tailored exactly to your needs. Therefore, we also calculate the prices for parcels in national shipping individually and favorably.

Contact our MBE Center and find out about our national parcel prices and all other transport tariffs.
