Why Lolland-Falster

6 Good Reasons

Expansive Modern Infrastructure – Construction of the Femern Belt Tunnel
Lolland-Falster has modern infrastructure, with an international airport, a transport centre, major harbours, and of course the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link.

Lolland-Falster International Airport has a 1,200 x 30-m runway with lights, well suited to cater for smaller propeller and jet aircrafts or helicopters for business flights and taxi services.

Transport Centre Cargo Syd, supports all types of cargo trucks including the extended, modular units. The transport centre offers one point-of-contact services, e.g. customs clearance, service and repair of trucks, fuel-facilities, redistribution of goods, a café, storage, payment of road tax, office facilities, etc.

There are several large harbours in Lolland Falster. Nakskov harbour and Nykøbing harbour both have adjoining industrial areas, but the most significant ones are Gedser and Rødby harbours where the ferry lines to Germany function as transport corridors between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe.

The construction of the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link will contribute to even better infrastructure and shorter trip between Denmark and Germany.

Local and dedicated staff for most jobs
Resident staff on Lolland-Falster are more loyal than elsewhere in Denmark. On average the local staff members here have served their companies for a much longer time than in most other areas of Denmark, therefore, our companies benefit from a higher throughput and efficiency as well as from lower costs for the introduction and training of new staff.

Generally, you will be able to find highly educated, local staff for most job positions. The “job-centres” of Lolland and Guldborgsund Municipalities will assist if new staff members need additional training. The course content will be tailored to the needs of the individual companies and course expenses for unemployed people may be covered by the Municipalities.
