Kopf & Lübben GmbH, a Coop member in Bremen, Hamburg and Frankfurt, Germany, is making preparations for their exhibition to be held at the transport logistic fair in Munich on 4th-7th June, 2019. “Besides marketing our brand, our focus will be on promoting our extensive know-how and experience of rail freight between China and Europe.

fairs in the world will welcome over 60,000 visitors from across 120 countries.
