Episode 030 - The Largest Improvement to Global Trade Since the Panama Canal

Does Logistics Matter?

Jan 24 2023 • 40 mins

Answering YES to the question today is Byron Bennett, CEO of Zergratran.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • His plans to create a green shipping corridor through Colombia parallel to the Panama Canal
  • How high-speed Maglev-powered skids will autonomously move containers through the 80-mile tunnel
  • And how two fully automated ports on each side of the tunnel will create the biggest cross-dock operation the world has ever seen, enabling the transfer of a container from a ship on one side to a ship on the other side within 30 minutes.
