The new title Nordic Trucks is progressing steadily. The texts are relatively time-consuming and still need to be checked. Nevertheless, it looks good and in the near future another book can be added to the mbmcargotech collection.

Restoring old photographs is a time-consuming job. Above all, you need patience and, of course, an eye for detail. It is also important to stop in time, as the photo should not be too polished.

Many photos and especially the older ones often need much more than removing a dust or occasional scratch. Sometimes parts are missing or the photo, negative or slide is seriously soiled. In that case, only meticulous recovery remains. This work requires a lot of time and attention. An additional dilemma is the question of what the real colours should be, often this can no longer be determined. If the result of a restoration is a fine result in the end, the effort has been worth the time.

Do you have damaged old photographs that are worthwhile or of great importance to you personally? Ask about the possibilities of mbmcargotech in this area.

nb. Please note that not everything can be repaired and in addition, the character of the original must be preserved.

Developing a new book or even a book series is a lengthy process. Of course, personal preference plays an important role in the choice of subject matter. Equally important is the availability of suitable photographic material of the subject. Once the subject is determined, coming up with a working title comes into the picture. Usually the working title stays and is used as the final book title. The next step is to develop a logo for the book. In almost all cases the logo will be the title bearer of the new book or series. Often the choice is made to design the cover first. It provides a form of hold for the book and gives an idea of the character of the new book.

Although in the mbmcargotech truck & transport books the picture prevails, the accompanying text also gets a lot of attention. For substantiation and correct display of for example technical data mbmbcargotech has a very extensive archive. Every piece of information can be substantiated with supporting archive material.

Of course the archive contains folder material of all common but also less known commercial vehicle manufacturers. The oldest folder material dates from the sixties, of course it is up to date to the present day.

In addition to the commercial vehicle manufacturers, manufacturers and suppliers of towed equipment, bodywork, maintenance and accessories are also fully available for consultation.

Composing a book on the subject of road transport without background information from transport companies is difficult. Also in this area mbmcargotech has a large number of brochures from domestic and foreign transport companies in its archive.
