Greece has an advantageous geographical location and is economically suitable to become Europe’s primary gateway.
Positioned at the crossroad of three continents (Europe, Asia, Africa), Greece has long been a strategic node for the development of transportation in the greater region.
In this environment, Greece’s geographical position as a gateway between East and West render it highly attractive for investments in logistics and transport to take advantage of these increasing trade flows in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
Greece is part of the EU’s Orient/East-Med corridor that connects the maritime interfaces of the North, Baltic, Black Sea and Mediterranean.
The main port of Greece, Piraeus, is a large port with significant capacity both as a container port and as a car terminal. It is also close to the main Mediterranean maritime route (210 nm) and provides access to a large logistics centre in Thriassio and a high-speed cargo train route leading into Europe. All of the above allow Piraeus to serve both as a transshipment centre and a gateway port to Europe.
