Niedersachsen's excellent position at the centre of Europe and fast connections by road, rail, inland waterway and air make it a very attractive location for logistics enterprises.
Central position, perfect transport connections – Niedersachsen has established itself as the logistics hub at the intersection of Europe's main north-south and east-west routes. With over 260,000 workers, the logistics sector has grown fast to become the states largest employer.
New enterprises benefit from the combination of advantageous geographic situation and excellent connections.
The European motorway axes from east to west and north to south intersect in Niedersachsen, Hannover Airport provides the air freight and passenger connections, the location within the rail network is uniquely convenient, and Niedersachsen's seaports, including JadeWeserPort – Germany's only deepwater harbour – connect the State to the world's trade routes.
As a logistics state, Niedersachsen is also exceptionally well developed in associated services. Enterprises will find partners in procurement, distribution, manufacturing and waste disposal/recycling. Further specialist service companies complete the spectrum.
Wherever in the world your goods are intended for – using Niedersachsen as your distribution hub is always a good idea.
