Ferry connection between Delfzijl and Germany good for the economy

It may soon be possible to travel from Delfzijl to Emden in Germany by ferry. Groningen Seaports announced this, which is one of the initiators of the new ferry connection to be constructed. At the moment the only way to reach Emden from Delfzijl is by road, which results in a journey of almost a hundred kilometers. The intention is for the ferry to go up and down once an hour between the Netherlands and Germany.

The upcoming ferry service should yield some obvious benefits for both the Netherlands and Germany. For example, German wind turbine suppliers are currently very in need of Dutch specialists. They hope that the ferry service will make it easier for them to attract them, since the travel distance is still an obstacle to this at the moment. The Netherlands can also solve a labor shortage in this way. Companies in Delfzijl and Eemshaven need many employees in the short term. They hope that they will be able to call on German guest workers through the ferry service. All in all, the initiation of this connection between the Netherlands and Germany hopes that the Dutch border area will receive an economic boost.
