The comparison of specific requirements for a European gateway with those offered by the Leipzig-Halle region show that almost all requirements are fulfilled or even exceeded. Especially the infrastructure required by this type is well represented with numerous motorways and the high-capacity freight airport. Only in the area of multimodal connections are improvements possible. In this regard, better use of local inland canals is desirable. In contrast, the most important route for goods, roads and rail, are very well integrated and can both be used at multiple locations, a reason why the overall hinterland connections in the region are very good.
Overall, the large amount of open land, relatively low property and labour costs, a good supply of local logistics service providers and the prominent setup support for logistics investors makes the Leipzig-Halle region attractive across the board for this type of logistics.
