Hyperport, heralding a new era in container transportation

HyperPort is a sustainable high-speed cargo and freight solution which is capable of increasing capacity and efficiency while also keeping a check on the pollution and congestion at ports worldwide. The system which is developed in partnership with terminal operator Hamburg Hafen und Logistik AG, is said to be going into certification design review.
At present, as part of its short term concept, the companies are developing a VR demonstrator that will be presented at the ITS World Congress in Hamburg later this year from October 11-15.
Engineered to current industry standards, the new concept is a plug-n-play solution for port operators who are capable of transporting containerised cargo hundreds of kilometres away, in minutes. It will be capable of sustainably moving 2,800 containers per day at speeds of up 600 km/h (327 mph).
The new system is considered to give the Airplane speed at the price of freight cost. It is potentially two or three times faster than high-speed rail and has 10 times the speed of regular rail services. Also, it is more energy efficient as the track doesn’t need to provide power to the pods continuously. Furthermore, the pods can leave every 30 seconds, and this makes it an on-demand service. Such exceptional speed makes it very well in sync with the changing consumer demand and the rising concept of same day deliveries.
