Utrecht is attractive for the logistics industry due to its location at the crossroads of the main national and regional arterials. In 2014, logistics employed 10.400 people in Utrecht.

Business location Lage Weide takes pride of place within Utrechts’ freight traffic. Lage Weide is not only the largest business location of the province, possessing an efficient container terminal at its harbour, it is also the province’s only location which combines highway-, waterway- and railway access. Large logistics centers for companies like Kuehne Nagel, Hema and DHL are located at Lage Weide. The “port of Utrecht”, started in 2012, is a cooperation of Utrecht city and industry aimed at sustainable freight traffic in the region. Lage Weide is a main pivot as sustainable, multimodal connecting gateway.
