Luxembourg’s international airport is one of the leading freight airports in Europe and home of Cargolux, Europe’s leading all-cargo carrier. Along with China Airlines, Yangtze River Express, Qatar Airways, and Panalpina, Cargolux offers multiple daily destinations to all continents, transforming Luxembourg into an ideal gateway to global markets. LuxairCargo, with its modern and well-equipped air-freight handling facilities moving 1.2 million tons a year, offers secure (TAPA certified), efficient and speedy ground handling that enables jumbo freighter planes to be customs cleared and unloaded in record time. Trucks are literally a minute away and can reach 60% of the EU’s GDP in less than a day.
CFL Cargo (conventional rail freight) and CFL Multimodal (combined transport and multimodal logistic services) provide reliable rail connections to major continental cities across the EU and Turkey, as well as to ports in the North, Baltic and Mediterranean seas.
Thanks to convenient access to government and custom authorities, customs duties and value-added tax are straightforward and free of red tape. Also, unlike most other European countries, no cost is generated by the pre-financing of import VAT in Luxembourg because those payments are automatically and unconditionally shifted to the VAT return.
Qualified carriers, handling agents, forwarding agents and logistics technology providers, among others, ensure on-time access to all European countries.
