Package delivery is set to get a lot more efficient in the near future as electric and autonomous transportation technologies become more widespread, which is something the conceptual 'TU523' hybrid electric VTOL aircraft gives us a taste of. The aircraft is capable of picking up entire shipping containers and transporting them high above roadways to their final destination at a cost that is 70% less than traditional trucking and about seven-times faster. The 16 electric turbines on the aircraft adjust and adapt to conditions or requirements to get it from location to location efficiently without interruption.

The conceptual 'TU523' hybrid electric VTOL aircraft is the design work of Thorsten U. Reinhardt and positions itself as being optimally efficient to usher in a new age of delivery capabilities.
