Port of Odense

Historically a canal harbor, the Port of Odense has in the latest years developed into a large central port. With recent expansions the capacity of the harbor has doubled and is beginning to show as an important port for goods transport both within Denmark and within Europe.
In the last two years substantial funds have been invested in the expansion of the port at levels significantly larger than the average for other industrial ports in Denmark.
Short distances to highway system and the completion of expanded infrastructure in the port area have significantly improved and enabled the port’s ability to handle modal shift transport. Since September 2009 modal shift transport of goods has risen in importance to the Port of Odense.
The port management is optimistic with regards to the port’s potential to become the central Danish sea transport center with high goods capacity and an infrastructure and cargo handling that is both flexible and effective.
