By 2031, CST can provide Switzerland with a privately financed, digitally controlled overall logistics system that will promote the competitiveness of the economy and improve quality of life in the long term. CST is able to transport and distribute small goods continuously and reliably. The backbone of the system will be a tunnel system 490 kilometers long from Geneva to St. Gallen and from Basel to Lucerne, with an ad-ditional branch connecting Berne with Thun. The first 70 km section of the network will connect the Härkingen-Niederbipp logistics hub. The CST city logistics system will provide an efficient and environmentally friendly fine distribution of goods in the ci-ties. The CST system, which is powered exclusively by renewable energy, is significa-ntly better than conventional transport in ecological terms.
