Located in the heart of Western Europe, Belgium occupies a key position in the European and international economy. As one of the six founding states of the European Union and home to many international organizations, Belgium has always been a thriving business market with partners around the world.
Belgium offers your company a myriad of options thanks to the interconnected transport network. The high-speed rail links with Brussels, London, Paris and Cologne, as well as direct motorway links with neighbouring countries, provide it with the necessary assets for an exceptional strategic position. Whether you opt for road, rail, sea, river, air or multimodal transport, you can depend on an extremely efficient system of distribution.
Located less than 20 km from the Netherlands and just over 40 km from Germany, the city of Liège, the eastern gateway to Brussels, enjoys an exceptional geographical position in the heart of Europe. Being in “La cité Ardente”, it centres you in Europe and allows you to reach 60% of the EU purchasing power within a radius of 500 km. It’s precisely here that e6 decided to install its offices!
We are pleased to be in a place that includes the first airport to focus its development strategy on the transportation of goods. The Liege Airport (called The Flexport) is an international airport located in the center of the European Air Freight Triangle (Paris, Amsterdam and Frankfurt), and accessible 24/7.
Also, to account for another asset, the Meuse*, the backbone of development beginning as early as in the 10th century. Liège was already exchanging goods with the Netherlands, France, England and Germany. Today, the Liège port complex is the third inland port in Europe. It benefits greatly from its easy access to major European ports:
- The port of Antwerp (129 km) via the Albert Canal
- The port of Rotterdam (250 km) via the Juliana canal and the Meuse
- The port of Dunkirk by the East-West axis.
A valuable benefit for the new free trade agreements between Europe and Canada!
It was only natural for e6 to pursue its international vision by setting up its offices in Liège. With cultural diversity, the intermingling of Latin and German, and linguistic wealth this country is one of the world’s leading laboratories in Europe and by extension, a natural fit for e6
