The International Maglev Board is currently conducting a scientific, worldwide survey on the prospects of Urban Maglev systems until the beginning of July 2022.

Urban Maglev systems are transport systems for the low to medium speed range. They can transport passengers or cargo.

Urban Maglev systems are currently (2022) in commercial operation in Japan, South Korea and the People's Republic of China. In Germany, there is one supplier from the southern German region that is trying to establish its Maglev system worldwide.

If you are interested in this topic, we would be pleased to hear your opinion.

The survey is conducted in English and German.

Link to the German-language survey: https://survey.th-deg.de/index.php/339993?lang=de


The results will be published open access (= free of charge). There are no financial interests. There is no influence of the industry. The data will be evaluated by students of German universities.

Thank you and best regards,

jok

America wants HSR but it is uneconomical because it cannot take overnight container trains like Japanese maglev could making them faster and more profitable than the existing slow trains.

As the wheels would only be on the ground for four kilometres at each station it could stop anywhere needed through the day so I strongly suggest that S C Maglev be used so the overnight container train could go 700 km/h in a single 11 psi tunnel like what I propose between Sydney and Melbourne.

Hello Eddy,

as far as I know, the Chuo high-speed Maglev system is not designed to carry cargo.
The Transrapid system could transport standard containers for air cargo.
However, the question is whether it is really necessary to transport cargo at such high speeds. The logistic chain has too many slow parts ("last mile problem"), so high speed at some points does not always significantly reduce the total transportation time.

I know the Japanese maglev is not designed for overnight containers but it would be easy for China, Japan, and America to develop the Sydney to Melbourne one in a single 11psi tunnel which allows 700 km/h with passing stations at Canberra and Albury to enable daytime fares lower than planes saving 5,000,000 tonnes of jet fuel per year and reducing the 700,000 B doubles on the Hume

The survey is now closed and the analyses have started.

Thank you for your interest and participation.

The results will be published in autumn 2022 via the IMB newsletter.
