The explosive growth in online shopping has outpaced development of delivery methods.
A change is urgently needed to address the negative environmental impact from the ever-increasing volume of goods vehicles. Magway is a revolutionary e-commerce delivery system that improves air quality and congestion by removing significant number of parcels and the delivery vans that carry them from the roads.
The recent Covid-19 pandemic has also highlighted the importance and vulnerability of UK supply chains. A Magway network could provide significantly enhanced resilience and connectivity for the provision of goods and medicines to individuals across the UK and beyond.
Magway represents a significant improvement over the current state of the art of road transport. As it is entirely automated and powered by electricity, it is expected that Magway could reduce staff-related operating and fuel costs.
It produces significantly less emissions in comparison to other freight transportation modes and can exploit renewable energy sources. It also accommodates small loads which could minimise delays in loading/unloading trucks, allowing faster delivery times.
As it is not a road-based system, Magway is not affected by congestion, safety, accidents and weather. This could enhance reliability of freight transportation.

The UK is the fourth most congested developed country in the world. The cost to the UK, in 2016 was £30.8bn. On top of this road maintenance costs amount to over £2bn pa, which excludes an additional £12bn required for existing local road repairs.
The overall impact of HGVs on the road network amounts to in excess of £17bn pa, with less than a third paid for through taxes.Magway will reduce the reliance on HGV/LGVs in the future and will substantially improve the traffic burden on roads. It can address the entire home grocery market and 90% of parcels distributed from customer fulfilment centres.

Allows for more efficient use of logistics space and enables vertical warehousing.
Magway can operate at full speed 24/7 in all weathers, bringing your clients location effectively closer to their customers, faster, more reliably and efficiently. It runs in an enclosed tube and therefore also offers a secure service for your tenants.
Magway has been optimised to accommodate online grocery deliveries and in excess of 90% of online general merchandise deliveries to consumers.
Our linear motor technology enables our vehicles to climb steep gradients. Goods can easily on-board onto our system from multiple stories without the need for building expensive and space intensive multi-story loading bays and ramps. This lets you use more space that would be dedicated for logistics for other purposes and to build more efficient vertical warehousing.
