Locomation & Wilson Logistics Announce World’s First Large-Scale Autonomous Truck Purchase Order

gbafNews28

Locomation, the leading provider of safe and reliable autonomous trucking technology, today announced the worlds first autonomous truck purchase order from Wilson Logistics, an industry-leading transportation logistics company based in Springfield, MO. Under the terms of the deal, a minimum of 1,120 Wilson Logistics tractors are to be equipped with Locomations groundbreaking Autonomous Relay Convoy (ARCTM) technology, with the first units delivered in early 2022. Additionally, the deal amends the commercial agreement between the two companies to extend through 2028.

We understand the importance of autonomous vehicle technology to the future of Wilson Logistics, and choosing our AV partner has been a deliberate process, explained Darrel Wilson, Founder and CEO of Wilson Logistics. In Locomation we see the most viable path to safe, rapid, and broad commercialization and were proud to make this purchase commitment. Wilson added Locomation delivers both the technology and the implementation methods required to enable Wilson Logistics to realize our strategic plans for profitable growth through technology.

Wilson Logistics is a leader in the industry with significant focus on driver quality of life, overall fleet safety and operational excellence. This purchase order is just the beginning of a significant leap toward autonomous technology for the entire trucking sector, said Dr. ‡etin Meri§li, CEO and Co-Founder of Locomation. Wilson Logistics has been an excellent partner and their multi-year commitment to Locomation demonstrates the strong industry validation of our autonomous technology in freight transportation.

The agreement follows a successful pilot program with Wilson Logistics this summer that included two Locomation trucks hauling Wilson Logistics trailers and freight deployed as an Autonomous Relay Convoy (ARCTM) on a 420 mile-long route from Portland, OR to Nampa, ID. ARCTM allows one driver to pilot a lead truck equipped with technology augmentation while a follower truck operates in tandem through Locomations fully autonomous system. Each ARCTM segment is engineered for maximum yield and utilization by Locomations business operations team.

Working with the Wilson Logistics team, we defined road segments to maximize asset utilization by capitalizing on freight density in each lane which enables shippers and carriers to substantially increase their use of available capacity, explained Tom Kroswek, head of business development at Locomation. We then used our proprietary analysis methods to identify opportunities to optimize pricing to maximize yield per mile. Locomations unique ability to help our clients improve both yield and utilization is truly the holy grail in trucking. Of the 68 original high-value ARCTM segments we identified, Wilsons choice to now fill 37 of those lanes is a ringing endorsement of our capabilities.

At full commercialization, Locomations ARCTM technology is expected to produce an estimated 30% reduction in operating cost per mile, including 8% reduction in fuel consumption, and remove over 40 metric tons of carbon dioxide from the air per convoy annually.

About Locomation

Locomation is the leading provider of safe and reliable autonomous trucking technology. Locomations first product in an upcoming series is the Autonomous Relay Convoy (ARCTM), which enables one driver to pilot a lead truck while a follower truck works in tandem made possible by a fully autonomous driving system. Launched in 2018 by autonomy experts at Carnegie Mellons National Robotics Engineering Center and trucking industry veterans, the Locomation team includes some of the worlds foremost specialists in robotics technology, safety, and artificial intelligence along with highly experienced trucking industry executives.
