Since the advent of e-commerce, the importance of last-mile delivery has been increasing. Due to the pandemic, more people have started to shop online, and many cities are struggling with delivery problems due to the vehicles of numerous courier companies. Relying on cars, vans, and trucks for last-mile delivery causes traffic congestion and air pollution in urban areas. And relying solely on micro mobility for delivery leads to an increase in delivery costs. Subility actively utilizes subway lines that are spread across many cities to solve theseThis mobility provides affordable last-mile delivery during times when the subway is actively running and mainly offers pickup and last-mile delivery services for retail companies that do not have their own fleet of vehicles. problems. In addition, Subility is useful for intercity package transportation because it has modular pods that can be connected not only to trucks and subways but also to hyperloops. When moving with this pod, it can always receive power using the charging system inside the modular pod. For safe and efficient delivery, this mobility uses an air suspension system and climbs stairs using treads installed under the wheel chassis.
