Liège, a historic university town in Belgium, occupies a central role in the 21st century European economy. The city has a population of 200,000 with 600,000 in the broader metropolitan region. With a highly educated population, Liège is home to significant biotechnology and information technology companies. It is connected to Antwerp by European route E313 and the Albert Canal. This corridor is a key logistics hot spot in Belgium.
Located on the Meuse river, Liège is the third-most active river port in Europe. The Trilogiport—a multi-modal platform, integrating road, rail and waterways that opened in 2015—solidifies the region’s position as an important logistics and distribution hub. A network of highways, freight rail and high-speed trains coursing through the region ensure efficient circulation of goods and people.
Liège’s airport is the 28th-largest cargo airport in the world and the seventh largest in Europe. It is within a one-hour drive of large population centers, such as Cologne, Germany and Brussels. Multimodal movement of goods through the region is enabled by a network of warehouses and industrial property.
Prologis operates industrial properties and warehouses in the Antwerp–Liège corridor.
