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.
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.
Given the societal importance of this subject, we seek to debate this with industry, government, academia en citizens. Your voice counts too. Participation is free of charge. Why not register now for this unique event.

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.
