Rhine-Main - a top logistics location

213 Rhein Main Frankfurt blau 700x460pxIntroduction

The Rhine-Main region is among the most important logistics locations in Germany. On the one hand the region serves as an international gateway due to Frankfurt major airport, and on the other hand the Greater Frankfurt area has a high demand of large-scale logistics services. Commerce is slightly overrepresented in the area, being responsible for the local supply and centralized distribution. Along freeway A3 most of the logistics agglomerations can be found, but also from Frankfurt airport all the way to Groß-Gerau many logistics companies are located.
