Metropolitan Area Hamburg: Turnstile Connecting East and West
Logistics for Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
As a gate to the Baltic Sea and an interface to national and international transport links, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern offers vital pan-European transport routes with potential capacity for the logistics sector. The close connection to the Hamburg port with its excellent sea and onshore logistic environment is an inherent part in the international transport system, especially concerning the north-south axis in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
Industrial centres such as Berlin, Hamburg and Stettin can be reached quickly and easily by well-built motorways. For fast and effective air cargo transport, three modern commercial airports are available in Rostock-Laage, Parchim and Neubrandenburg. Transnational transportation is also readily available in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern via the 1,700 km rail network. The complex and efficient transport network distinguishes Mecklenburg-Vorpommern from other regions as an appealing location for industry and logistics.
