1972 - Where to store all the vehicles?

65 Years MOSOLF - Milestones of automotive logistics

With the increasing production figures of automobile manufacturers, a fundamental problem arose: Where to store all the vehicles until they are sold? In 1972, our company founder Horst Mosolf saw the solution in opening a temporary store for the region Stuttgart in Illingen (next to Vaihingen an der Enz). The newly developed area of tens of thousands of square meters even then offered our customers a considerable capacity for the temporary storage of vehicles. Today, the area of our branch in Illingen grew to 202.000 square meters giving space to 5.000 vehicles. The result: a handling capacity of around 200.000 vehicles per year!
