Being an expert in the transport field, Uber uses an app called Freight. Autonomous vehicles are offered as a special service to shippers looking to book truckers with a similar comfort as on the general application.

Autonomous vehicles are now on the road for Uber clients

The independent system operates with two main transfer hubs. A regular Uber driver in a normal truck picks up a delivery and hands it over to the hub. The latter will then assign autonomous vehicles for the long-distance delivery service. All this will be handled by Uber Freight which was launched in May 2017.

The autonomous vehicle technology has been tested since 2016

Despite not revealing a lot of information about its new shipment operations, autonomous vehicles’ technology has been researched by Uber since 2015. Its first self-driving vehicle operated in 2016 to pick up passengers in Pittsburgh.

Why are self-driving trucks the future of the freight industry?

While it can be easy to think about all the dangers that autonomous vehicles entail, its numerous advantages also need to be remembered. As stated on A-1 Auto Transport website, fewer accidents, a reduction in traffic jams and huge savings are the pros to consider. But the long-distance delivery service by self-sufficient trucks also means less job offers and more regulations at the same time.

Independent transportation is becoming a part of the vehicle industry

Companies such as Tesla and Google are also following in the footsteps of Uber. Embark, on the other hand, had its first long-distance journey with autonomous vehicles in 2017 with a haul from California to Florida.
