Logistics and Mobility

Logistics and Mobility

Hessen’s location at the heart of both Germany and Europe makes it a center for mobility. This is where national, European, and intercontinental transportation routes meet – one of our key strengths as a business location.

First and foremost, mobility means access to markets. A well-developed transportation network is the lifeblood of our region, allowing you to grow and compete. Our powerful transportation infrastructure lets you manage freight flows rapidly and efficiently, making sure goods reach their destination on time, every time.

We are working on smart solutions and technologies for the future, too, so as to increase efficiency and conserve resources. We are creating intermodal transportation hubs to take traffic off the roads and leverage the potential offered by rail and inland waterways. Digital systems will allow us to meet the needs of businesses and society, and to design sustainable mobility offerings from an economic, ecological, and social perspective.

In addition, we are supporting the development of alternative transportation concepts such as electromobility, thus helping to lay the foundations for tomorrow’s sustainable, environmentally friendly mobility.
