Hyperloop Technology to Be Studied as Shipping Tool

Hyperloop technology is fast-tracking into the freight sector.  Hyperloop One Inc., one of two companies racing to build the futuristic speed-of-sound transportation technology, announced a new partnership with DP World, one of the world’s largest port-terminal operators. Hyperloop One and DP World will work together to study the viability of using hyperloop technology to unload ocean-container cargo at the Jebel Ali port in Dubai. Containers would travel swiftly via hyperloop to an inland depot, while minimizing the impact on local surface traffic.
