Infrastructure is highly developed in and around Aarhus making it an attractive location to set up an industry.
Aarhus is built around one of the biggest industrial harbours in Northern Europe. Approximately 8,000 ships dock at the port annually, carrying a total of 11 million tonnes of cargo. There are regular shipping services to a large number of different ports situated all over the world.
In these years the harbour is undergoing a substantial expansion. The plan is to double its size before 2022 and thus to double the cargo-handling to 20 million tonnes. Aarhus is also close to the airport of Tirstrup and within reasonable distance of the international airport in Billund.
