SimPlan is a partner and simulates a digital logistics system for sustainable goods transport in Switzerland
“Is the tunnel diameter of 6.6 metres sufficient to transport the planned quantities of pallets in the long term?” This was one of the questions that Cargo sous terrain (CST) from Switzerland asked us to answer on the basis of a dynamic process simulation.
CST is a sustainable, automated overall logistics system that allows flexible, underground and above-ground transport of pallets and containers. Tunnels connect production and logistics sites with urban centres. The first expansion stage of the network comprises 12 hubs, approx. 74 km of tunnels and is scheduled to go into operation in 2031.
We are delighted to be able to support such a highly innovative logistics project as a partner with our expert knowledge in the field of simulation. At the centre of our work is the simulation-based determination of the performance of individual trades and the overall system, their dimensioning and the identification of weak points.
