NEXT GENERATION FREIGHT MOBILITY SYSTEM

NEXT 

THE FREIGHT SHUTTLE XPRESS SYSTEM IS DESIGNED TO COMPLEMENT AND INTEGRATE WITH THE EXISTING INTERMODAL FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM.

 

Typically, railroads are the most efficient in the long-haul segment of the goods-movement industry, especially for distances over 500 miles. Trucks are, and likely always will be, the most flexible mode of freight transportation.

A New Capability in the Intermodal Freight Transportation Network

 

FSX PROVIDES AN OPTION FOR AN ORGANIZED, EFFICIENT "CONVEYOR BELT"- TYPE OPERATION that achieves economic scale in high-volume corridors and relieves congestion on roadways and at “choke points” within the intermodal freight transportation system.

A POWERFUL NEW TOOL FOR ECONOMIC STAKEHOLDERS 

The market-based FSX business model creates a mechanism to channel private investment into infrastructure and to alleviate or reduce the need for government capital through public-private partnerships. Governments can also financially benefit from lease payments received from the FSX. This combination of technology and the proposed business model creates a powerful tool to enhance the quality of life of communities and increase the competitive position of industry throughout the United States while making a profit for investors.

 

FSX IMPROVES THE QUALITY OF LIFE, SAFETY, AND THE COMPETITIVE POSITION OF ECONOMIC COMMUNITIES

by removing truck traffic from congested public roadways and transporting freight using efficient, autonomous, electric shuttles on an elevated guideway within existing highway right-of-ways. Congestion, cost, and pollution challenges are a real part of everyday life.

 

FSX offers real solutions capable of satisfying the wide range of social, environmental, and commercial parameters required to implement a low-emissions, cost-effective, profitable freight transportation system.

FOR TRAVELERS

 

The Freight Shuttle Xpress system (FSX) can be operated within either existing right-of-way or private property and needs a footprint of less than ten feet on the ground to transport freight. Fully automated, the electrically powered shuttle transporters travel unimpeded along a dedicated guideway above traffic. This provides additional security for the freight and avoids interaction with existing traffic, possibly adding capacity to existing transportation infrastructure.

As an electrically powered transportation technology, it will not create any emissions within existing highway rights-of-way where it is operated, and the potential emissions that may have been created by a hydrocarbon based transport are mitigated.

MODELS

FOR TAX PAYERS

 

Today, FSX is entirely privately funded – the taxpayer pays nothing, unlike when constructing and maintaining our current transportation infrastructure. In fact, public coffers will receive revenue when the FSX leases air rights within existing public rights-of-way. However, should the public sector be interested in using public funds, the recent FAST Act contains legislation that should make it possible. Further, some of the public-private partnership models created by some state departments of transportation (DOTs) could be used as models by other DOTs to fund a FSS.

FOR SHIPPERS AND TRUCKERS

 

Providing a dedicated, elevated guideway ensures that freight can avoid delays due to traffic and regulations, as well as damage, vandalism and theft. The reliability delivered by the 24/7 operations of the FSX could enable the shipper to reduce stock levels in the warehouse and truckers to mitigate driver shortage issues and use their resources more effectively, thereby lowering their operating costs.
