The European Union aims to introduce synchromodal transport networks to facilitate sustainable and efficient freight transport. One fundamental opportunity of synchromodality is a modal shift towards environmentally friendly transport modes. In this respect, the present paper examines if a modal shift towards high-performance transport modes is beneficial for the concept of synchromodality. We consider the Hyperloop technology as a prime example for high-performance transport modes as it is proposed that it will be faster than air transport and more energy efficient than train transport. The results suggest that integrating the Hyperloop into synchromodal networks involves mutual benefits for both, the Hyperloop and synchromodality.
