Port of Lübeck
Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft mbH (LHG) runs the public ports of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck and is Germany's largest port operator on the Baltic Sea. The port is the furthermost south-western transhipment hub located on the Baltic Sea coast and with its dense network of liner services to the region, acts as a central turntable for the traffic between the traditional economic metropolis in west/central Europe and the fast developing BSR countries.
The port's location offers high-class hinterland connections: the three-lane A1 motorway in the direction of Hamburg connects Lübeck with the main economic centres of Europe. The rail network offers high efficiency both in carload and combined traffic. In addition, the Elbe-Lübeck-Canal provides a link to the European inland waterways network.
