Advanced Road & Rail Network
Holland’s extensive, modern network of roads and highways serves as a major asset to companies looking to establish logistics/distribution operations in Europe.
Interlaced with more than 14,000 km ( 8,600 miles) of road, including 2,235 km (1,389 miles) of limited-access, high-speed motorways, the Netherlands is within 24 hours of Europe’s largest consumer and industrial markets. Boasting more than 12,000 transport companies, the Netherlands is responsible for 14% of all international road transport in Europe, making Holland a top European location for international road freight transportation.
The Dutch rail system is no less impressive, with 3,200 km (2,000 miles) of network rail with direct connections to inland container terminals and links to destinations across the EU, Scandinavia and the Middle East. And thanks to Holland’s three high-speed rail lines and the Betuweroute—the double-track freight railway that connects Rotterdam to the German border—companies have fast, direct access to Europe’s major logistics hubs.
