Presentation of members

Danish ports are situated at the gateway from the Atlantic to the Baltic region and therefore have an important role to play in the international trade flow. Denmark enjoys a highly developed infrastructure - both land and maritime - as well as one of the largest maritime clusters in the world.

80 percent of Danish foreign trade volumes are handled in the ports. Recently, the Danish Ports have embarked upon huge investments and expansion projects. This means, that by 2025 the ports will have increased the total area with more than 1200 hectares.
