Hyperloop coming in India: High speed mass transportation

A sealed tube or system of tubes with low air pressure through which a pod can travel substantially free of air resistance or friction is described as the Hyperloop high-speed mass transit system.


Hyperloop is anticipated to debut in India shortly! Hyperloop, a high-speed mass transit system for both freight and passengers, is expected to be built in India or Saudi Arabia first, according to Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, CEO of Emirati international logistics giant DP World. Sulayem stated at Dubai Expo 2020, a six-month event that began on October 1, that high-speed transportation will be a reality in many parts of the world before the end of this decade. When asked about the Virgin Hyperloop's timelines, DP World's CEO replied, "Our hope is that when we attain economies of scale and you have long routes and it is popular, you will probably pay the price of a truck for the speed of an aeroplane," according to PTI.

Several companies are now working on the high-tech transportation system, including Virgin Hyperloop, in which Dubai-based port operator DP World owns a majority stake. A sealed tube or system of tubes with low air pressure through which a pod can travel substantially free of air resistance or friction is described as the Hyperloop high-speed mass transit system. The company tested human travel in a hyperloop pod for the first time in November of last year.

DP World previously stated that the Hyperloop transport system can substantially reduce inventory movement time scales, lowering completed goods inventory as well as necessary warehousing space and cost by 25%. Richard Branson, Chairman of Virgin Hyperloop One, revealed plans to establish a hyperloop transportation system between Pune and Navi Mumbai in Maharashtra in February 2018. However, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, their efforts have come to a halt.
