uCargo, where others shall not pass

[19.06.2023]

Mining industry plays an important role in economic development and meeting needs of society. There are several aspects that highlight the importance of this industry: mineral extraction, job creation, exports and foreign trade balance, infrastructure and local development, innovation and technological progress.

Mining industry faces a variety of transport challenges that can affect its efficiency and development. The key issues in this industry are:


Remoteness from consumer centres: many mining regions are located in remote areas, which creates transport difficulties. Getting mining product to consumers can require long hauls over long distances, which increases logistics costs and delivery times.


Inadequate infrastructure: In regions with a developing mining industry, proper transport infrastructure may sometimes be lacking. The lack of roads, railways, ports and other means of transport and infrastructure can make it difficult to transport mining materials and increase transportation costs.


Haulage issues: Mining industry often faces difficulties in organizing cargo transportation due to the nature of materials being mined. Some materials may be heavy, bulky, or have special handling requirements. This may require specialized means of transport and additional safety measures.


Requirement to transport across difficult terrain: Some mining areas are located in mountainous or complex topographical areas. This can make it difficult to transport materials due to steep inclines, narrow roads, obstacles, etc. Dedicated expensive modes of transport or additional engineering work may be required to overcome such problems.


uSky Transport & Infrastructure Technology offers new opportunities in the field of cargo transportation – the uCargo. This transport solution enables fast and inexpensive delivery of bulk cargo. At the same time, the route length is unlimited and ensures safety of the transported cargo.


Below are uSky Transport cargo solutions depending on specific application.

Our transport solutions can be used as links between logistics hubs, in remote or hard-to-reach areas, in-house at industrial facilities, in seaports, as well as in mining of mineral deposits. The automated control system minimizes impact of the human factor on transportation safety.
