Well-developed transport infrastructure provides the basis for interconnected cities and regions, and an effective logistics sector.

Germany offers world-class infrastructure for all transport modes; passenger transport and logistics operators can rely on well-maintained road infrastructures, railways suitable for high-speed passenger trains and for the transportation of heavy goods, as well as high capacity airports and waterways.

Well-developed transportation infrastructure requires the comprehensive planning, maintenance and operation of a sophisticated network of construction & planning enterprises with world-class expertise and supervising authorities with the necessary capacities for effective quality control. Research institutes and universities are continuously pushing and evolving the high standards of German infrastructures. Our quality and safety standards for planning and construction are internationally recognised.
