Our prosperity relies on functioning logistics and efficient freight transport systems.
Alongside economic and population trends, megatrends such as globalisation, urbanisation, digitisation and economic change are key growth drivers. According to forecasts by the Swiss Federal Office for Spatial Development ARE, freight transport in Switzerland will increase by 40% up to 2040, with larger growth than passenger transport.
This brings numerous challenges, such as securing an efficient supply of goods, ensuring that businesses and households can be reached, minimising environmental impact, organisation and completion of the last mile, etc. The public sector and the business community can help increase the efficiency and sustainability of logistics and freight transport in various areas of activity and through a variety of measures.
With our in-depth knowledge of freight transport and logistics and our extensive know-how in methods and processes, we work in interdisciplinary teams to provide our customers with tailor-made solutions that are both innovative and practical. We focus on customer needs, value close collaboration and involve stakeholders through the use of workshops and sounding boards.
