As gate to the Baltic North and interface to national and international transport chains, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern offers important European transportation routes with capacity potentials for the logistics industry. Modern ports with excellent sea and hinterland connections are firmly integrated in the international transportation networks, particularly in terms of the North-South axis. The well developed motorways are less vulnerable to traffic congestions and, therefore, economic centres like Berlin, Hamburg and Stettin can be reached in a short time. By rail, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is considered passenger and goods handling intersection in the north. In addition, the three largest airports offer efficient cargo handling around the clock.
The outstanding central position of Mecklenburg – Vorpommern provides strategic advantages to the companies for procurement and distribution in the north and east of Europe.
