A discussion on new initiatives in the Cargo sector connecting actors and insights from the US West Coast and Europe.

Next Stop: The Future of Freight

Hyperloop is currently under development by a number of startups across the world, with many governments and universities commissioning studies and creating preliminary designs for the system. Join the conversation with thought-leaders and experts from Silicon Valley and Europe to learn more about the future of transportation and how these new services will be integrated into the urban mobility landscape.

This panel brings together leading Cargo transport stakeholders to discuss the future opportunities and initiatives of using hyperloop services for the potential high-speed and sustainable transport of goods. Will hyperloop enable ultra-fast, on-demand deliveries of high-priority goods? Can this revolutionize logistics, support economic zones, and create thriving economic megaregions? These and more questions will be tackled during the live panel.

This is the second theme of the four part series Next Stop: Approaching the Future of Mobility that surfaces ideas and insights from mobility experts in four main areas: micromobility, simulation of mobility, hyperloop, and autonomous vehicles. This series is a collaboration between the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), and swissnex San Francisco, and will feature a mix of panels and presentations with thought-leaders, presentations from leading startups, insights into the most cutting-edge new vehicles, networking opportunities, and more.
