Just two weeks ago you read that Hyperloop Transportation Technologies is coming to Abu Dhabi by 2020. Now Virgin CEO Richard Branson revealed his plan to team up with a trade and Supply Chain Logistics Company to build a new cargo brand for an on-demand world.
Every day increasing number of customers expect to receive their goods as soon as possible after purchasing online. To solve for the growing demand, Branson is determined to build a hyperloop-connected globe that will see goods shipped instantly to customers “at the speed of flight” and closer to the cost of trucking.
That’s around 620miles/h, which is crucial if you’re carrying high priority payloads such as medicine.
Branson says that powered by Virgin Hyperloop One, Supply Chain Partners can reduce a 4 day truck journey to just 16 hours.
