Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HyperloopTT) has revealed a vision for a sustainable high-speed cargo and freight transportation solution called HyperPort.
Working with seaport Hamburger Hafen and Logistik AG (HHLA), the companies will present a virtual reality demonstration of Hyperport at ITS World Congress, a mobility trade show, taking place in Hamburg, Germany, on Oct. 11-15.
HyperPort is a solution for port operators to transport containerized cargo hundreds of kilometers in minutes. The system is capable of moving 2,800 containers a day in an enclosed operating environment to eliminate at-grade crossings. This will help to increase reliability, efficiency and worker safety, HyperloopTT said.
The capsules can transport two 20 ft standard or high cube containers or one 40 ft or 45 ft container at airplane speeds.
