The harbours of the Port of Zwolle are strategically located near several rail connections. This makes it very easy to transport containers, general cargo, dry bulk and chemical products by rail. Zwolle is an important rail junction, with fast and efficient connections to the north of the Netherlands, Germany and the rest of Europe. The completion of the new Hanze line in 2012 also brought the Randstad region into easy reach.
In addition to excellent connections to the Dutch rail network, the rail junction at Zwolle offers good connections to the road network to the north and east of the country and to the Randstad.
