Asse was situated on the crossroads of both north-south as well as east-west trade routes, having a fertile, easily cultivated and well-drained soil. It therefore grew to be a regionally important centre and a relatively important military-strategic one. Asse has often been the subject of military campaigns and has been recorded as having been burnt down several times. But lacking any mineral resources, being far from any navigable watercourses and being in close proximity to other larger centers such as Aalst, Dendermonde and Brussels, Asse never developed into an important commercial, political or industrial centre but remained a locally important market town. There was some brewing and marketing of the local hop production. It is now a commuting town for Brussels with a number of light industrial and commercial activities.
