Nothing in the world moves without logistics. But what does it take to ensure the movement of goods globally and in Switzerland? What does a simple order on the Internet trigger? A new focus exhibition at the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne offers fascinating insights.
Climb aboard a pedalo on the artificial water basin in the middle of the Swiss Museum of Transport Arena and explore the earth in miniature, with the largest container ports. As you do so, you will circle Pallettenhafen, a work of art using around 1,800 standardised pallets, all made of Swiss timber. Located at the heart of the Swiss Museum of Transport, various containers have been converted into interactive exhibition rooms and show, for example, the impressive journey of a banana – all the way from the farmer in Costa Rica to a supermarket shelf in Switzerland.
In the Road Transport Hall, you can discover how an automated small parts warehouse works. Try your hand at being a “logistician” at one of the scanning and picking stations. Get an overview of supply chains with the help of a miniature model. In addition, virtual reality chairs using virtual reality technology turn logistics into an experience. The attractive job profiles offered by the logistics industry can also be discovered in a playful and interactive way on the large multimedia wall of the SUPPLY GAME.
