Switzerland’s new Cargo Sous Terrain (CST) logistics system is the latest innovation in flexible transport for small-component goods.

The CST system is a privately funded initiative

The CST system is a privately funded initiative aiming to create an underground freight-transport system that is sustainable, efficient, and environmentally friendly. The system comprises a network of tunnels and caverns in which freight vehicles are transported on magnetic levitation tracks. The CST project has the potential to revolutionise transport in Switzerland and set a global precedent for sustainable transport solutions.

The first part of the network will stretch over 70 kilometres in length, running from Härkingen-Niederbipp to Zurich. The system is due to be fully operational by 2031. The company says that the rest of the network will be built by 2045.
