Elon Musk’s Boring Company Looks Towards Freight Tunnels

Elon Musk and his tunnel drilling company, The Boring Company, appears to be pitching the idea of using its tunnels for freight, according to pitch materials leaked from the company. According to Bloomberg, The Boring Company is now pitching wide tunnels, 21 feet across, which would be able to move two shipping containers side-by-side, with battery-powered freight carriers. It’s unclear how far along the idea has gotten, however, those tunnels are nearly twice as large as the company’s existing tunnels. The Boring Company has been trying to apply its technology to moving commuters, but so far has only started deploying its technology to the real world at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
