The Current Reality
Today, the effect of weather conditions, natural disasters and conflicts have made it necessary to come up with alternatives to ensure the free movement of people and goods.
The socio-economical impact, caused by the restoration or replacement of weakened or damaged structures, as well as the optimization of routes and logistic tracks for resources transportations are, today, key issues.
It was because we recognise these needs, and the high skills and suitability of BERD’s technology, that MBS – Modular Bridge Solutions was created in 2016.
Scope of Activity
Backed by the experience of our human resources and our recognized network of suppliers and partners, the scope of MBS services includes the:
