(Will be a limited company, need to register). The Transport Internet (NetTube) will transform the way many packages are transported in London. We aim to use London's unused underground tunnels, unused overground rail network & motorway/dual carriageway divides in order to transport parcels using pneumatically powered pipelines (pneumatic power is one method, we have other potential methods) (Imagine receiving an Amazon parcel within 30 minutes from ordering online, 24 hours a day; or a retailer receiving upto 2 tones of freight from a pipeline on the outskirts of London to an unused underground tube station in inner London.). The customer can either pick up the delivery from the station or the final part of the delivery can be made from battery powered 'Milk Float' delivery, cycle delivery or delivers on foot/deliveroo etc. We have a stellar team of mathematicians, engineers, software developers & pipeline experts ready to take on this game changing project.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Will create jobs, reduce pollution & road traffic accidents and will be hugely profitable.
Steps to get it done:
We have a team of experts ready to design a test system . The test system will be designed and tested in London. The technology is available. Simply need to determine the most efficient method of delivery (e.g Pneumatic, conveyor or mini-tracks). Aim to raise further funding using the crowdcube platform. We have serious investors interested but are unconvinced with regards to reaching Government approval (powerful transport lobbies) Hoping to overcome this by initially concentrating on package delivery rather than freight delivery.
