Hydraulic container pipelining (HOP) is a new concept in freight transport which has far-reaching implications for a world plagued with pollution and energy shortage. Compared with other modes of freight transport, such as trucking and railroads, HCP consumes less energy and causes less pollution and damage to the environment, based on the same amount of cargoes transported over the same distance. The concept holds great promise for the future.
