Cargo sous terrain comes to the Parliament
The realisation of the privately financed Swiss Cargo sous terrain (CST) is a big step closer! AWK Group congratulates on the next successfully mastered milestone in this project and is looking forward as part of the CST to the joint advancement of this innovative logistics lighthouse project.
On 29 October 2020, the Federal Council referred the draft bill for the Federal Act on Underground Freight Transport to Parliament. CST President Peter Sutterlüti is delighted with today's announcement and the broad support for CST: "We are very grateful to the state government and the Federal Office of Transport for enabling us to reach this important milestone. We now look forward to the parliamentary debate with confidence".
With Cargo sous terrain (CST), Switzerland will have a privately financed and automated overall logistics system from 2031 onwards, which will ensure the punctual delivery of goods and sustainably guarantee the competitiveness of the economy and the high quality of life of the Swiss population. CST transports and distributes small goods continuously and reliably throughout Switzerland.
