Efficient infrastructure

From Leipzig to the world: a highly modern trimodal transport connection ensures smooth production and logistics in the region.

One of the most powerful and modern infrastructures in Europe has been developing around the economic Region of Leipzig since the mid-1990s. The motorways along the central trans-European traffic and transport corridors have predominantly been expanded to include 6 lanes and are generally free of traffic jams. They connect the Region of Leipzig to the federal capital of Berlin, the industrial state of Bavaria and the Ruhr region via short distances. The seaports on the North and Baltic Seas as well as Eastern and South-Eastern Europe can also be reached within a few driving hours.

Leipzig/Halle International Airport is located in the immediate vicinity of the commercial and industrial areas in the north of Leipzig. With its 24/7 cargo operation, it ranks among the top 5 in Europe. DHL Express has set up its European hub here and is continuously expanding it. Over 1 million tons of freight are handled here every year.

These structures are supplemented by a trimodal cargo handling centre, which perfectly connects the road and air traffic with the railways. The area is directly next to the A14/A9 motorway junction and Leipzig/Halle Airport is connected to the high-speed railway lines. From here, the Trans-Eurasian rail link also runs weekly freight trains to Russia and China.
