The future is autonomous and Locomation has what it takes to achieve it. It is deploying Autonomous Relay Convoying (ARC) technology into the industry that needs it most—trucking. With Locomation’s ARC technology fully operating one truck and simultaneously assisting another, the labor cost is reduced up to 50% while the amount of moving freight remains the same. Locomation’s unique ability to swap leader and follower trucks mid-drive ensures the leading truck is always operated by a rested and qualified driver, ultimately enabling longer distances traversable in a single shot.
