Company Description

    TLN is the Dutch business association for companies in logistics and transport based in Zoetermeer (Zuid-Holland).


    Project Description

    Project description:

    The Netherlands is a high-density country with a lot of logistical activity. Public opinion is critical when it comes to the allocation of land to warehouses. However, the Netherlands has relatively few high-rise buildings. Specifically warehouses are often single-level, while they compete for scarcely available space. Therefore, this project aims to find out what the potential is of multi-level warehouses.

    We aim to investigate:

    1. What are the additional costs and revenues of multilevel buildings.
    2. What are the main challenges for developing multilevel buildings

    A concrete case with a cost-benefit analysis of a warehousing concept with one of the TLN members.

    Goals of the project:

    Insight into the possibilities of multilevel warehouses.


    Report and Thesis

    Essential student knowledge:

    Knowledge of supply chains, warehouses, and affinity with construction en spatial development.
