Abstract

CargoTube is an innovative approach for decarbonized, efficient, effective, and safe transport. A CargoTube is an Hyperloop-based transport system designed to transport goods. This paper demonstrates how such systems are planned by a traditional phased approach as used for the planning of road construction. The planning tasks are supported by tools such as spreadsheets, discrete event simulation and lifecycle performance assessment allowing the anticipation of performance from different perspectives including economic and environmental dimensions. An example connecting a Logistics Service Park (LSP) with an automotive production site is used to demonstrate the approach and to show the identified benefits of such a system in comparison with traditional transport approaches.
