The Panalpina Digital Hub is an initiative that sees us embracing new and emerging technologies, and exploring how we can tweak and adapt those to allow us to offer our customers the very best in new digital solutions.
Panalpina recognizes the importance of innovative technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, predictive analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and the Uberization of logistics and we want to remain absorbed in the latest developments, all for the benefit of our customers.
With this in mind, we established the Panalpina Digital Hub with the wide-ranging remit to explore, play and develop. We also engage: we know that start-ups are often transformative and disruptive. We want to engage with them and to bring ground-breaking innovative products to the industry and to our customers.
To increase its visibility in the digital ecosystem, Panalpina has joined the global innovation platform Plug and Play, the best known and most active accelerator program in the area of supply chain and logistics. The goal is to test, develop and validate promising start-up technologies before potential commercialization. The Digital Hub aims to shape Panalpina’s future with innovative digital solutions that create new levels of value for customers and accelerate growth for the company.
Panalpina also invested in Cargo sous terrain (CST), an initiative aimed at revolutionizing logistics. CST envisions an automated, digitally controlled comprehensive logistics system in Switzerland by 2045, aimed at promoting economic competitiveness and improving quality of life. As a shareholder, Panalpina is represented on the CST supervisory board. Read more about Panalpina's involvement in Cargo sous terrain.
