Lausanne is a city in the west of Switzerland, in the French speaking region of Romandy. Situated on the shores of Lake Geneva, it is probably most famous around the rest of the world for housing the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee and the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Perhaps less well known but also noteworthy is the fact that, with twenty-eight Metro stations, Lausanne is the smallest city in the world to be able to boast a rapid transit system. Although it doesn't have a major industrial base, Lausanne draws people from around the world due to the presence of top-class educational establishments such as the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the International Academy of Sports Science and Technology. Visitors who are attracted to Lausanne by its picturesque location on Lake Geneva can also take advantage of such attractions as the Olympics Museum and the Cantonal Botanical Museum and Gardens.
If your business needs to arrange Lausanne shipping on a regular basis, then the price of hiring couriers can become a major business overhead.
