The North American Council for Freight Efficiency has begun exploring the subject of autonomous trucking, publishing a series of articles on its website under the banner NACFE’s Perspective on Autonomous Trucking.
According to Heavy Duty Trucking, NACFE is presenting the “thought leadership pieces to open a dialogue with the industry on autonomous trucking.”
“When it comes to autonomous trucking, we are in the nascent stages of its development, and there is not enough data for us to issue a Guidance Report,” said Mike Roeth, NACFE’s executive director. “Although as we see the technology develop, we will engage a study team and explore the topic in-depth.”
With the help of HDT journalist, NACFE has compiled a series of brief papers on various aspects of autonomous trucking. The site update launched with three such papers:
- The Age of Automated Logistics Arises
- The Five Forces Driving Disruption in Trucking Today
- Distribution Yards — An Early Autonomous Test Bed
