[IT] Maglev freight trains? FS and the port of Taranto think so

Maglev freight trains? FS and the port of Taranto think so
The port of Taranto, in South-East Italy, will be involved in the experimentation of new technologies after a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between various parties. The agreement implies the development of magnetic levitation systems for freight trains. Magnetic levitation trains, also known as Maglev, are most commonly used for passenger trains. This new experimentation project might be a turning point for the role of this technology in rail freight.

FS’ experimentations at the port of Taranto

So far, the project aims at carrying out feasibility studies for the application of magnetic levitation technology for rail freight and the building of prototypes. The parties involved are currently looking for investors to reach the quota of four million euros, 1,8 of which will be financed by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana.

The parties involved in the MoU are the Apulia Region, the Port Authority of the Ionic Sea, Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI), Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane (FS), and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility (MIMS).

Unless they use Japanese SC maglev technology they will always be stuck with trucks like China because it is too slow to be economical.
