With a gross domestic product (GDP) about 2.5 times higher than the European Union average, the country is mainly dominated by the large financial industry.

Thanks to high-quality infrastructure, its geographical location in the heart of Europe and good networks with EU partner countries, the location serves as a logistics centre for business activities. Whether we organise your goods by air freight, rail transport or road transport, the country is well-equipped for logistics flows.

Major transport routes Luxembourg and your benefits
Despite Luxembourg's size, important transport links cross the country. This applies to rail transport, road transport and air freight. Thanks to regional subsidies, the country has developed into a major European logistics player, strong as an intercontinental as a multimodal hub in value-added logistics. Based on our experience, we manage and transport your supply chains quickly and cost-effectively around the world.
Luxembourg has a very busy airport close to the capital (the eponymous Luxembourg). As one of Europe's largest cargo airports, it is the home airport of Europe's largest cargo carrier 'Cargolux' and is a perfect base for logistics. This excellent organisation at the airport ensures safe, efficient and fast ground handling times. Thanks to its proximity to neighbouring countries Germany, France and Belgium, every European capital can be reached within 24 hours with (intermodal) transport via the road network.
Additionally, in terms of its road network, Luxembourg manages to benefit from the single European market with several million residents. The overall length of the highway network is not great, but the roads are in excellent condition. Its connection to the German and French motorways - which lead to Belgian and Dutch ports - enable hassle-free global transport. The CITA telematics system provides real-time and fully digital information on the traffic situation in the country.
Luxembourg also has reliable rail links connecting important hubs within the EU and beyond its borders. It has been one of China's preferred European ports of entry since 2019 and plays an important role in rail transport.
Although sea freight is not possible through deep-sea ports, the country does have the inland port of Mertert, which provides access to inland waterways across Europe via the Moselle and Rhine rivers. Especially through the Rhine, we quickly reach Europe's largest deep-sea port (Port of Rotterdam).
Key cities for freight transport in Luxembourg
Luxembourg offers real estate at its two logistics parks, Eurohub Centre and Eurohub South, by building or leasing warehouses that can be used as logistics centres.With goods storage close to the airport, intermodal rail and road terminal and connection to the inland port, your logistics can be organised quickly and efficiently.
If you need to store and transport goods that require special security and surveillance, you can also use the Le Freeport freight centre. Located near the airport, the site is particularly secure and equipped with the latest technology.

Groupage Luxembourg - LCL and LTL
The term LTL (Less Than Truck Load) is used in freight transport to indicate that only part of the available cargo space of the truck is filled. In the logistics industry, it is therefore common to combine several partial loads at one loading point or to add a partial load. In short, groupage or LTL is therefore the merging of several smaller loads into one larger load. This optimises the use of the freight container during road freight.
The abbreviation LCL stands for Less than Container Load and in sea freight refers to shipments that do not fill an entire container and are combined with other general cargo in a consolidated container. LCL transport mainly offers price advantages and some benefits in practical handling and stowage. For general cargo, only proportionate transport costs are incurred for the use of the container volume.
Full loads Luxembourg - FCL or FTL
The abbreviation FCL (Full Container Load) is used in sea freight for full container loads. Unlike LCL: a load that only partially fills a container. With FCL loads, the container is loaded by a shipper and unloaded at the destination by a consignee.
With an FTL delivery (Full Truck Load), the shipment fills the entire available cargo space. The truck transports this shipment to its destination without reloading. This is for one recipient. This completely utilises the truck’s transport capacity.
Fast delivery is the main advantage of FTL. This is because there is no need for transhipment or extra route planning to different recipients. The truck drives directly to one destination. It is the most effective method of transporting goods by road to a final destination.

Incoterms®: Protect your international trade with Luxembourg
As a global logistics chain director, Seacon Logistics deals a lot with Incoterms®. Although we are not involved in the commercial agreements between buyer and seller, we are often consulted about the dangers and consequences of the various Incoterms® before a transaction is concluded. In practice, many companies still underestimate the risks.
To ensure that contractual formulas in the trade of goods are interpreted equally by buyer and seller, we have created a white paper and an infographic.
Important additional information: Public holidays, driving bans and local details
Luxembourg is not only known as an ideal logistics location, due to its intercultural population and three official languages (Luxembourgish, French and German), the small dukedom is also a particularly diverse place for trade.The special features to consider and other important information for logistics are explained below:
- Placement rules: While other European countries have clear legal rules for short-term road transport, the legal hurdles in Luxembourg are not so clear. For this reason, we are more than happy to find out together what the current situation is before transporting your goods across the country.
- Euregio SaarLorLux/Rhine: If you are a company interested in transport beyond Luxembourg's borders, the cooperation zone promotes the country's border region in particular.
- EU membership: Depending on the project, you will need an EU licence or CEMT permit for international transport. See also bilateral licences between Luxembourg and third countries.
If you have more detailed questions about the specifics or rules in Luxembourg, please feel free to contact our team. In a joint logistic analysis, we examine which aspects are relevant for your goods transport.
