Linehaul Truckers are Facing a Quality of Life and Health Crisis
The company marked its progress by submitting its Voluntary Safety Self-Assessment to the U.S. Department of Transportation for public disclosure on how Locomation is addressing safety and its readiness for public road testing.
Locomation expects to be the first company to deploy autonomous trucking technology safely, legally and routinely in commercial operations at scale across the United States, starting next year.
While innovation in the autonomous space is moving at breakneck speed, Locomation has devised a way to help trucking companies re-engineer their operating models to begin seeing major efficiency gains even before they deploy autonomous trucks.
Locomation earned high marks on a third-party environmental impact report conducted by Boundless Impact Research and Analytics last month.
Thanks to persistent industry headwinds, the debate surrounding how to pay drivers – by the mile or by the hour – is heating up, and Congress is taking notice.
Most often, hesitation surrounding autonomous vehicles centers on cost and safety concerns. Locomation set out to address these pain points with a phased approach.
