An underground urban delivery system that forwards parcels along magnetic tracks, connecting distribution and consolidation centers via pipelines. Hidden underground along with a nation-wide network of pipes, this method has no impact on traffic or railways. It uses conveyor belts and vacuum tubes to transport parcels and containers through a freight pipeline embedded with sensors. The freight pipeline works with an electromagnet railway, producing energy as the kinetic system moves. With no gasoline necessary, this automated underground delivery system can be an eco-friendly alternative in urban settings, as it would be propelled through sustainable energy sources, such as solar or wind power.
