Infrastructure in Greater Copenhagen

Greater Copenhagen is the gateway to Scandinavia, Europe and the Baltics. Excellent infrastructure for transport by road, air, rail and sea provides access to 100 million consumers in 24 hours.

Greater Copenhagen is located in the heart of Scandinavia and it is the hub for all distribution from Central Europe to Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea.

With a distribution centre in Greater Copenhagen, you can reach the Northern European market of 100 million consumers within 24 hours. This is why major logistics providers such as DHL Express, UPS, TNT, PostNord and FedEx all use Greater Copenhagen as their logistics hub.

 

Scandinavia’s most well-connected airport

Copenhagen Airport, situated just 8 km and 15 minutes by train from Copenhagen city centre, has the most intercontinental, European, Scandinavian & Baltic connections of all the Scandinavian airports. It is also the largest cargo airport in Northern Europe with direct flights to 31 cargo destinations.

The airport vicinity has the easiest access to road, rail and sea connections of all airports in Europe. In 2018 Copenhagen Airport was voted best airport in Northern Europe and third best airport in world for airport security.

The second largest port in Scandinavia

Northern Europe represents a significant market for industrial and consumer goods. Copenhagen Malmö Port represents one of the most sophisticated, competitive and environmental-friendly logistic centres in Europe .

Copenhagen Malmö Port AB (CMP) is centrally located in both Denmark and Sweden serving the import to and export from the Greater Copenhagen region. The Port is located as the natural gateway for the markets in Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea. A single distribution centre – that’s all it takes to reach ten countries in the Baltic Region. CMP enjoys the perfect location. International car manufacturers like Toyota and Honda already make use of the opportunities it provides. 

 

The Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link: shorter travel time to Germany

Being one of the largest infrastructure investments in Europe, the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel will create a major transport corridor between the Greater Copenhagen region and Hamburg in Germany. The 18 kilometre tunnel will reduce travel time between Copenhagen and Hamburg from 4 hours to 2.5 hours.

When the tunnel opens, it will take about 10 minutes by car and about 7 minutes by train to cross the Fehmarnbelt. This represents a time saving of nearly an hour compared to the current ferry route. The tunnel is expected to open in 2028.
