The Baltic Hub
Thanks to its strategic location, Malmö Industrial Park can function as a hub for the whole Baltic Sea region, its roughly 100 million consumers and its hundreds of thousands of businesses. The city already functions as a logistics hub for Toyota and the Spanish steelmaker Acerinox, for whom Malmö is the reloading point for cargo destined for the Baltics, Russia and other parts of Northern Europe.
- Continued globalisation is expected to encourage more companies to establish logistics hubs in Northern Europe. The city of Malmö is in an advantageous position, having at its disposal large areas of land that can be exploited to take advantage of future opportunities.
- Current developments in transport and infrastructure in Northern Europe favour the region. Future investment in a road link (tunnel) between Germany and Denmark, and high-speed trains are examples of this. Thanks to its geographic location, the city of Malmö is well placed to benefit from the commercial opportunities this will create.
