West Flanders lies in the heart of the European logistics centre. Almost 60% of the European purchasing power is located within a radius of 500 kilometres. A central location combined with its efficient infrastructure, a dynamic logistics sector with experience, knowledge and know-how make West Flanders a logistics hub. Low logistics costs and an integrated service make West Flanders an ideal region to serve the golden triangle Paris-Brussels-London.
Two deep sea ports (Zeebrugge and Ostend), two international airports (Ostend and Kortrijk-Wevelgem) and three inland terminals (River Terminal Wielsbeke, Avelgem Container Terminal and International Transport Center LAR) assure its role as a logistics hotspot. An extensive congestion-free and versatile network of motorways, railways and waterways provides the local industries and distribution with direct and flexible access to the most important European consumption and production centres.
