By land…

Since the opening of the Great Belt Bridge in 1998 and the Øresund Bridge between Denmark and Sweden in 2000, Denmark has been the natural gateway to Northern Europe, Scandinavia and the Baltic region. The well-developed rail and road network with toll-free highways gives swift and easy access to these markets.

The construction of the Fehmarn Belt Bridge, connecting Germany to Denmark, is planned to start in 2020. With Denmark as your distribution hub, this will bring even greater opportunities to reach Central and Northern European markets.

Two interlinked logistics clusters in east and west Denmark offer an extensive range of logistics facilities, value-added services and service providers.

By air…

The core of the Danish distribution hub is our four international airports with some of the fastest clearing times in Europe, including a cargo transport time of just three hours. In addition to Copenhagen Airport, Denmark has three airports in Jutland: Aalborg, Aarhus and Billund.
In 2016, Copenhagen Airport was rated most efficient airport in Europe for the 10th time in the past twelve years. More than 60 airlines operate from the airport, serving more than 160 destinations. This makes it by far the biggest airport and distribution hub in Scandinavia.

By sea…

Some 75 percent of Danish exports are shipped by sea from around 25 ports. More than 64 million tonnes of international goods are loaded and unloaded at Danish ports every year.

The major industrial ports offer daily connections to overseas destinations and regular connections to major ports in Europe. Freeport and bonded warehousing and roll-on, roll-off / load-on, load-off facilities are available.

The international port in Copenhagen has a 24-hour service, the shortest turnaround times plus some of the most competitive rates in Europe. Merged with the port of Malmö in Sweden in 2001, the port is one of the largest in Northern Europe and the gateway to the entire Baltic Region and the European continent.
