Luxembourg’s central location in Western Europe makes it a perfect hub for regional and European goods distribution.
Luxembourg’s international airport is the 5th largest freight airport in Europe and home base of Cargolux, Europe’s leading all-cargo airfreight carrier. Located at the junction of the major European road and rail networks, Luxembourg provides an easy access to the European consumer market. Luxembourg has a river port (port of Mertert), which can be used for the dispatching of raw materials as well as of agricultural, iron and steel, and petrol products to other inland and North Sea destinations. World-class logistics players such as Cargolux, China Airlines, Cobelfret, DB Schenker, DHL, Kühne+Nagel, Morrisson Express, Nippon Express, Panalpina, TNT, Yangtze River and Yusen Air & Sea, to name but a few, have already chosen Luxembourg as an operating base for its added value logistic activities.
One of the key reasons for selecting Belgium as a ‘launch pad’ is its location at the heart of Europe, lying between northern and Mediterranean Europe. Paris (an 80-minute train journey away), London (111 minutes), Amsterdam (113 minutes) and Frankfurt (202 minutes) are all less than 300 km away and Belgium’s very highly developed transport network, comprising roads, waterways, railways and airports enables both passengers and freight to be transported quickly and easily.
Another key component in Belgium’s transport infrastructure is its many seaports, including Antwerp, the second largest European port and the fourth largest in the world. Since 2005, container transport in Belgium has been booming.
The Netherlands plays a key role in the globalised economy, by connecting producers and consumers worldwide via sophisticated logistics. Success is based on a combination of cutting-edge infrastructure, world-class service providers, and a coastal location at the heart of Europe. Key factors are the Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest port and fourth-largest worldwide, and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, a major European air-freight and passenger hub. Both are supported by world-class logistics service providers and an extensive network of roads, railways, inland waterways and pipelines.
