uSky Transport apart from being a truly green form of travel has a range of typical tested and certified structural and technological members of transport system, which enables performing various tasks in the field of urban and intercity passenger and freight transportation.


Depending on customer requests and natural and climatic conditions for implementation, uSky transport and infrastructure complexes can have different transport and infrastructure configurations.


Today, uSky Transport & Infrastructure Technology for urban and intercity passenger and freight traffic is ready to be introduced to the world market.


The main commercial advantage confirmed at the current stage of uSky transport development is a rather low cost compared to competing systems.

The guests’ interest was sparked by uCont, an autonomous self-propelled electric cargo vehicle designed for the movement of 20' (TEU, Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units) and 40' (FEU, Forty-Foot Equivalent Units) cargo containers at speeds up to 100 km/h.


uCont can be applied in logistics hubs, sea and inland ports, mining sites in various climatic conditions.


uSky cargo complexes can transport up to 100 million tons of goods a year and have several advantages over the conventional cargo transportation means:

  • applicability in regions with difficult terrain, hard-to-reach areas, water barriers, loose soils, etc.;

  • feasibility of track laying along the shortest path;

  • high environmental friendliness;

  • high energy efficiency;

  • low costs for track structure and infrastructure;

  • full automation of loading and unloading operations, etc.

The guests learned about the efficiency, environmental friendliness and safety of high-speed electric vehicle uFlash with steel wheels.


Exceptional aerodynamic features allow for energy savings, too. At the record speed of 500 km/h, uFlash consumes only 0.93 kg/100 pax×km in fuel equivalent.
