Future Urban Automated Cargo Service
Urban Automated Cargo Service Can Relieve Streets and Roads from Some Truck Traffic
- Direct, Non-stop Cargo Delivery to Urban Cargo Terminals
- 30 to 65-mph Travel Speeds!
- Containers Transition from Hi-speed Inter-city Lines
- Transport To and From Large Cargo Shippers and Receivers
The automated cargo container cars used for hi-speed inter-city transport of cargo are able to transition between inter-city and urban area lines for seamless cargo transport to and from cargo terminals within urban areas. This capability reduces large truck traffic on urban streets, roads, and freeways. Cargo delivery is also accelerated by avoiding needs to load and unload much of the cargo for urban delivery.
Containers Lift from Carriage at Terminals for Local Transport on Flat-bed Trucks
Cargo Vehicle on SuperWay
MegaWay offers high-speed cargo transfer service that shares the MegaWay system with personal automobiles and public passenger service to assure efficient, low-cost operations. Most cargo currently transported in large, over-the-road trucks can be moved in MegaWay containers. Cargo containers may be lifted from MegaWay carriage for local transport on flat-bed trucks.
MegaWay Cargo Container
MegaWay cargo containers may be removed from carrier
vehicles for local transport by trucks to and from points away from
cargo terminals located along MegaWay SuperWays. Large end doors allow
standard forklifts to move palletized cargo into and out of containers
in exactly the same manner as large trucks are loaded and unloaded.
Up to three tons of palletized cargo can be accommodated.
MegaWay Automated Cargo Vehicle - Empty
MegaWay cargo vehicle sloping end caps fold down to reduce aerodynamic drag during movement of empty vehicles to minimize energy use by dead heading vehicles. The folding end caps contain provisions to hold the removable cargo container in place for shipment on the SuperWays.
