The Port of Aarhus is an important hub for ports in Northern, Southern and Eastern Europe as well as for the eastern Mediterranean and the Far East, to which we have regular routes. The rest of the world is reached through weekly feeder connections between Aarhus and continental ports. The road network to the motorways is well-developed.

With 3 x 400m on-dock rail tracks, APM Terminals Aarhus operates a dedicated fast rail service between Aarhus and the Taulov rail terminal. The service, which has a 3-hour transit time offers 4-6 weekly departures, with plans and capacity to increase this in line with growing demand.
