Cargo Pod_Side V3.2_Compressed


EVIE Cargo is designed to create an efficient experience in airports, whether it is used for human transport or cargo. EVIE Cargo is able to take aircraft akes (baggage containers) and ULDs (Unit Loading Device containers) all using the same self-powered platform, cutting emissions and reducing delays. EVIE Cargo will also be equipped with an AI control system that will optimise the use of Lithium and Carbon Ion power.

We can ensure our Pods are a great benefit to airports as they are proficient and guaranteed to perform with not only ‘no disruptions,’ but with great benefit, reducing delays and completely optimising the entire airport experience.
