Forward Thinking: Japan's Green Logistics with Unitsky String Technologies


The Japanese government plans to create a network of automated logistics lines with zero emissions. The first line between Tokyo and Osaka is scheduled for completion by 2034, which will allow for the efficient transportation of millions of tons of cargo and free the roads from thousands of trucks. The project aims to address the issue of labor shortages and the growing volume of online purchases. The ambitious project also comes with significant costs, estimated by experts to be $23 billion, excluding conveyor belts or self-driving carts, which has prompted the Japanese government to turn to private investors.

A similar task, but with much lower financial costs and higher efficiency, can be achieved using Unitsky String Technologies (UST). The main advantages of these technologies are:

  • High productivity of the freight complex

  • Year-round uninterrupted operation of the transport complex

  • The ability to quickly deliver cargo without intermediate warehousing

  • Adaptability to current cargo flow

  • The ability to pass over hard-to-reach areas with complex terrain due to long spans between intermediate supports

  • Potential scalability of the uST transport complex to establish logistical connections with regions

  • Reduction in operating costs due to lower energy and fuel consumption, reduced costs for maintenance personnel and their salaries, and automation of loading and unloading operations and the transportation process

  • Minimal negative impact on the environment

Thus, Unitsky String Technologies offer an efficient, economical, and environmentally friendly solution for the logistics needs of any country. Their implementation in the automated logistics lines project will not only significantly reduce costs and increase the efficiency of transportation but also minimize environmental impact, creating a more sustainable and high-performing transport system.

uCont is a suspended automatic cargo vehicle designed to transport shipping containers of 20- and 40-foot nominal lengths.
