The UAE hosted the International Transport Mission with the schedule that continued from January 14 to 22, which was organized by the Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the National Confederation of Transport, Social Service of Transport and National Apprenticeship Service of Transport, and Transport and Logistics Institute.
The high-ranking delegation of the heads of the largest Brazilian transport companies arrived in the UAE to immerse themselves in the advanced technological environment since it is the UAE that is the world benchmark for innovation in the field of transport and logistics.
The Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce has been operating for over 65 years with the mission of connecting Brazilians and Arabs to bring about economic, social and cultural development, having played over the years a major role in developing the relations between these two peoples. Their goals is consolidating and expanding partnerships, creating opportunities, and above all bringing Brazilians and Arabs closer together, acting as facilitators of the flow of information and knowledge between them.
The National Confederation of Transport is the highest representation of Brazilian transport companies. CNT coordinates and represents the sector's interests. CNT develops technical studies and research to provide information and knowledge about Brazilian transport, support companies, and subsidize actions and public policies. It also carries out projects to support business management and the development of transport activity in Brazil.
Social Service of Transport and National Apprenticeship Service of Transport is an institution created to provide professional training, healthcare services, sports, and leisure activities for workers in the transport sector.

In addition, it is focused on planning the future of transport. It makes the transport sector more competitive and promotes advanced training at an academic and professional level with high performance.
SEST SENAT Executive Director Nicole Goulart stated that the Delegation was committed to learning best practices in mobility, public transport and passenger and freight-oriented legislation in order to bring knowledge, practices and technology to Brazil to promote the development of Brazilian transport.
One of these days, the Brazilian delegation formed under the International Transport Mission in the UAE, was warmly received at uSky Test & Certification Centre, which had already earlier been visited by Mr. Marcos Pontes, the first Brazilian astronaut, and currently the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation in the Brazilian government. The visit by Mr. Marcos Pontes at uSky Centre aroused an active interest in uSky technology among the Brazilian business community.
The delegates were told about the exceptional capabilities of uSky transport and infrastructure complex based on the patented technologies of uSky rail and uSky transport overpass:
uSky complex can be easily adapted to perform any logistics tasks in urban (speed up to 150 km/h) and intercity (speed up to 500 km/h) passenger and passenger-and-freight transportation, as well as cargo transportation at speeds up to 150 km/h;
uSky complex features high efficiency, safety, reliability and durability, as well as significantly more favorable construction costs and minimal operating costs compared to other types of overpass transport (monorail, maglev train, surface metro, light rail, cable car) and underground metro;
a special design of uSky overpasses allows to significantly reduce their material consumption and increase durability and reliability both under the influence of extreme natural and climatic (earthquake, flood, tsunami, storm wind, fog, ice, snow and sand drifts, etc.), and man-made (vandalism, terrorism, etc.) factors.
The certified tropical uCar, an energy-efficient and truly green electric vehicle designed for urban and intercity traffic and adapted to work in a hot climate, aroused great interest among guests from Brazil, a queue of people wishing to take a test ride in the innovative vehicle formed at uSky passenger station.
The delegates also visited the demonstration pavilion showcasing a cutting-edge and sharp-looking high-speed uFlash designed for commuting on long-distance and international routes, and capable of reaching speeds of up to 500 kilometres per hour.
The representatives of Brazilian transport companies were pleasantly surprised by the capabilities of uSky Transport & Infrastructure Technology and expressed their desire to establish promising business relations with uSky Transport soon.
