Get the exclusive right to develop MBE in one or more countries. As a Master Licensee, you adapt the MBE business concept to the local market and develop the MBE network in the territory.

Mail Boxes Etc. (MBE) is one of the world's largest networks of full-service centres, offering logistics, communication and support solutions to businesses and individuals.

Since its inception in San Diego (USA) in 1980, the concept has grown continuously and expanded to all corners of the world. Today, MBE has more than 1700 multi-service centers located in more than 45 countries.

Active in the service sector, MBE brings added value by helping individuals and professionals (more specifically small and medium-sized businesses) to optimize their productivity by outsourcing needs and activities that are not part of their core business.

Our mission is therefore to facilitate our clients' business by offering them customized solutions that are easily accessible and delivered with a unique level of expertise.

MBE centers offer 5 types of solutions:

  • Packaging & Shipping
  • Micro-logistics
  • Impression
  • Solutions Marketing
  • Domiciliation

We are therefore looking for a Master Licensee who is motivated to develop the concept in Africa
