DEBATE

 

FUTURE-PROOF AND MATURE TRANSPORT MODE


 

Are pipelines, as a mature transport mode, ready for transporting packets and pallets? Learn with us from a real-life Swiss case. 

 

FUTURE TRANSPORT CONCEPTS

The Limburg Logistics Platform, powered by POM Limburg, and Future Proof Transport Initiatives, invite you to debate the future of transport systems and the role of pipeline transport. 

 

FIVE TRANSPORT MODES

Logistics players today can make use of five transport modes: road, rail, water, air and pipelines. The first four modes are being exhaustively used and require continuous expansion. Pipelines differ in that they are used much less which is surprising given their performance regarding reliability, safety and the environment.

 

NEW APPROACH

Has the time come to develop new forms of collaboration, operational, business, and investment models regarding pipelines? To do this for the various links in de logistical supply chain, from port to city. In Switzerland 'Cargo sous terrain' is rapidly becoming a reality.

CONTINUE EXPLORING

 

The transition to a sustainable future can only come about if we are prepared to continue exploring. A key feature of a transition is uncertainty and letting go of contemporary practices. Through exploring together we want to discover what this new future brings and what it means for connectivity. A new challenge brought about by new paradigms.
