The Hyperloop system is the ideal solution for the transport of goods, but expensive, says who held the post of the head of Ministry of Railways (MPs, the predecessor of JSC «RZD») and the first head of Russian Railways Gennady Fadeyev.

«From my point of view, this technology is still more for freight transport. Why would the capsule not carry products from China at higher speeds? For freight transport, in my opinion, the ideal solution, but very expensive. Above it should work», — said Fadeev in his interview to RIA Novosti.

Hyperloop is a system consisting of steel tubes, inside which moves a train — sealed capsule on the aerodynamic cushion. In theory, can reach speeds of up to 1.2 thousand kilometers per hour.
