The Fehmarn Tunnel
The construction of the Femern tunnel, the world’s longest immersed road and rail tunnel, is indeed an opportunity for developing and growing your business.
Northern Europe’s largest construction project so far presents ample opportunities for secondary tasks in a variety of industries such as transport, logistics, security, cleaning, hotel, catering, tourism and retail.
The tunnel makes Lolland-Falster Scandinavia’s gateway to and from continental Europe. The area connects the three European commercial hubs of Copenhagen, Hamburg and Berlin, giving companies located in Lolland-Falster unique conditions for development and growth.
The increasing commercial activity surrounding the tunnel has also attracted talents in all types of industries, prompting educational institutions to escalate their offerings to both white and blue collar labourers.
All types of industries have the opportunity to capitalize and take part in the commercial activities that are taking place throughout Lolland-Falster, from major types of work to secondary or complementary services.
If you are looking to establish or expand your business relating to the construction activities or anything in that periphery, call us and together we can determine a way to move forward.
