    The authorities of Germany’s biggest port in the city of Hamburg are looking into the feasibility of constructing a so-called hyperloop transport track that could be used to distribute cargo from the harbour to inland logistic hubs and the other way around, the Port of Hamburg Logistics Company (HHLA) says in a press release. Together with US company Hyperloop Transportation Technology, HHLA presented its plans to the public to construct a hyperloop test track by 2021.

    According to an article by public broadcaster NDR, HHLA estimates costs of seven million euros for a hyperloop station at the harbour and about 20 million euros for every kilometre of the track.
