Autonomous Solutions

Hub-to-Hub, Highways

In it for the long haul. Move goods from hub-to-hub with our Autonomous Transport Solutions for highway trucking. By introducing a new source of capacity to the existing transport system, we offer a flexible autonomous solution that increases efficiency and safety while keeping drivers closer to home.

Transforming the movement of goods on highways

A growing demand for freight, shortage of drivers and mounting concerns about health and safety– the long-haul transport industry is primed to benefit from autonomy. Our Autonomous Transport Solution (ATS) for highways delivers autonomous freight capacity for shippers, carriers, logistics providers, and freight brokers who want to be at the forefront of industry transformation. 

Our solution includes a wide range of services: our autonomy-enabled Volvo VNL, the Aurora driver, infrastructure, repair and maintenance and more. Based on a Transport as a Service (TaaS) model, with our solutions, you only pay for the capacity you use.

Our Autonomous Transport Solution is fully scalable, so you can always optimize based on your current needs. This flexibility also enables better asset utilization for increased efficiency and profitability.
