Greece, leveraging its strategic geographical location, along with increasing investment in upgrading its transportation and logistics infrastructure, has gone a long way toward developing its position as a global logistics hub, over the past years. However, there is still room for improvement for the country to achieve "excellence". The second edition of EY's report, "Greece: International Freight Center", examines the role of Greece as a competitive intermodal corridor for the European seaborne trade with Asia.
EY presents a series of area-specific recommended actions, with regards to the ports, the road network, the third-party logistics sector, air and sea freight transport, the rail network, the customs, the human capital in the transport and logistics industry, as well as the brand awareness of Greece as "an international freight center".
