Major transport hub
Within a 60 to 90 minute drive, you will find a domestic market of over 20 million people, two major seaports (Rotterdam and Antwerp) and three major intercontinental airports (Amsterdam Schiphol, Brussels and Düsseldorf). The Netherlands ranks 4th in the World Bank’s latest Logistics Performance Index (LPI). Eindhoven has a fast-growing international airport, second only to that of Amsterdam. It currently serves over 75 destinations in Europe, including 17 capital cities. Incidentally, the Netherlands retained its No.1 ranking in the 4th edition of DHL’s Global Connectedness Index, ahead of Singapore and Ireland.
World leading data infrastructure
The Brainport Eindhoven Region is well connected to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), the largest and fastest data transport hub in the world.
