Last year, Weyland vehicles shipped nearly 1.7 billion gigatonnes of freight and transported over 8 million citizens off-world. This year, our transportation sector plans to continue that rate of aggressive growth. Weyland has invested 15% of total revenue into developing newer and better cargo craft, SEVs and personnel transports. We are focused on 3 key areas.
As Weyland's planetary engineers delve deeper into the galaxy to create new colonies and Better Worlds, our employees meet more unexpected obstacles. Our small personnel transports are more advanced than ever, able to negotiate vertical barriers and traverse semi-molten terrain.
Weyland was the first to practically apply faster-than-light theory to its fleet of SEVs. We continue to outshine our competitors, making FTL ships that are safer, stronger and more maneuverable than any on the market.
Shipping is one of Weyland’s most lucrative business sectors. Our employees can move more cargo with less energy, making our shipping and towing vessels more efficient and necessitating a smaller interstellar crew. Transporting the ore, materials and equipment that help us thrive makes our freight division a vitally important part of our fleet.
