Luxembourg's financial centre - a European hub for international investors

With the advent of digitalisation and new technologies, global demand and production have led to increased logistical challenges around the world. The access to efficient, time- and cost-effective supply chain management solutions has become a major success factor for companies conducting cross-border operations on a global level. Located in the heart of Europe, Luxembourg has established itself as an ideal intercontinental and multimodal logistics hub in Europe for value-added logistics activities.

A dedicated all-cargo international airport providing airlinks to all continents

Luxembourg’s international airport is one of the leading freight airports in Europe and home base of Cargolux, Europe’s leading all-cargo carrier.

The global network of Cargolux and other airfreight carriers such as China Airlines, Emirates, Silkway West Airlines, Uni-Top, and Qatar Airways as well as Panalpina’s controlled airfreight network operated out of Luxembourg by Atlas Air offer multiple destinations to all continents on daily basis.

Luxembourg’s airport cargo centre has a total capacity of one million tons of freight per year and offers high quality services. With its modern and well-equipped airfreight handling facilities, LuxairCargo offers secure, efficient and speedy ground handling, allowing cargo widebody aircrafts to be unloaded and customs cleared at a record speed. Trucks are then on the motorway network within a few minutes and able to reach any European city in less than 24 hours.

 

An extended Gateway to major European ports and Turkish hubs

Reliable, scheduled, combined rail connections are provided by CFL multimodal to the North Sea, the Baltic Sea, the Iberian peninsula, the Mediterranean Sea, Turkey and other major EU hubs. A first train to China was launched in early 2019. In addition, new routes through Europe and beyond are added to the network on a continuous basis. Located at the junction of major North-South and East-West railway and motorway corridors, Luxembourg offers easy and uncongested access to the European consumer market.

 

Dedicated infrastructure for tailor-made solutions

 

Logistics parks: Two logistics parks, Eurohub Centre and Eurohub South, provide real estate solutions (i.e. by building or renting warehouse facilities) within easy reach of the airport, the multimodal rail/road terminal and the inland river port. Both have direct access to major European motorways. The parks are dedicated to value-added logistics activities. Since 2013, about 280,000 m2 of logistics warehouse facilities have been built or are under construction in Luxembourg, representing an investment of about € 285 million by the companies concerned.

 

Le Freeport: Located next to the airport’s cargo centre, Le FREEPORT Luxembourg is a multi-service platform dedicated to the storage, handling and trading of valuable goods (e.g. artworks, fine wines, precious metals and collectible items). This state-of-the-art facility offers maximum security, controlled temperature and humidity storage conditions and features the latest technologies to ensure safe and secure storage.

 

Le FREEPORT Luxembourg operates under the supervision of the customs administration and is subject to a tax and customs framework which requires that goods can only access and leave Le FREEPORT through licensed operators. Goods originating from non-EU countries that are imported into Le FREEPORT Luxembourg benefit from a suspension of VAT and customs duties until their final importation into the EU.
