Abstract

Underground logistics distribution systems seem to be a sustainable solution for environmental, congestion and space problems. In Holland many underground projects spring up like mushrooms, starting a definition phase to test the feasibility of the first underground designs. At local level some cities seek for opportunities to distribute by means of underground freight transport At regional level junctions between underground transport lines are examined to connect companies. At (inter)national level the interconnection of high-speed freight railroads with underground transport pipes between Schiphol and Aalsmeer should be in practice in 2002. In order to determine the feasibility of these transport syste
