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.

The ports and port industry in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern have a historical status and continue to grow and develop to this day. By 2025, goods traffic is predicted to more than double, from almost 30 million to over 73 million tonnes in the four ports of Rostock, Sassnitz/Mukran, Stralsund and Wismar alone, according to a study by the Ministry for Energy, Infrastructure and State Development. Smaller and more compact ports such as Wolgast and Vierow are also proving to be modern, flexible and efficient.

In recent years, the focus on these ports has been oriented above all towards local goods traffic and specialising in niche markets. The distribution of efficient ports along the extensive coastline provides ample opportunity to reach the hinterland and involvement in various short sea shipping activities. In their entirety, the ports represent a sound basis for the maritime logistics industry in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, with employment capacity for over 40,000 workers. You too can benefit from the efficient ports in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern!
