Situated at a cross-roads of major transportation routes and renowned for its economic dynamism, the Lyon region is fertile ground for the development of the logistics sector. The region is the second most important in France for the logistics industry and is attractive due to the high population density, high levels of consumerism and the density of the communication infrastructure. The development of multimodal transport links is a major challenge for the region, particularly in terms of rail and river/sea freight.
