TuSimple Autonomous Freight Network Integrates with Werner Enterprises

TuSimple has integrated with Werner Enterprises to provide roadside services for driver-out SAE L4 autonomous trucks on the TuSimple Autonomous Freight Network.

The partnership integrates Werner Enterprises’ roadside service network with TuSimple’s Oversight system to ensure that every carrier operating on the TuSimple Autonomous Freight Network has access to immediate assistance for its vehicles. Werner Enterprises’ nationwide network of 24/7 support will therefore play an important role in providing support to all TuSimple freight vehicles.

Derek Leathers, CEO, Werner Enterprises said:

“Werner Enterprises delivers world-class supply chain solutions predicated on transporting our customers' freight in a timely, responsible and safe manner. TuSimple is advancing the industry and redefining the way freight moves along the TuSimple autonomous freight network. Our alliance will enable TuSimple customers to receive benchmark service and support in the event of a service issue.”

The strategic relationship with Werner Enterprises encompasses an important stage in developing the Autonomous Freight Network and driver-out commercialisation

The TuSimple Autonomous Freight Network is a transportation network that allows freight to be moved safely and reliably with SAE L4 autonomous trucks. The network is currently operational from Arizona to Florida and is rapidly expanding to include additional logistics routes.

Jim Mullen, Chief Administrative and Legal Officer, TuSimple said:

“TuSimple created a SAE L4 self-driving truck that is capable of seeing, processing and reacting faster than a human driver. Uncompromised safety and unparalleled service are prerequisites for driver-out operations along the TuSimple autonomous freight network. Our service alignment with Werner Enterprises assures our fleet partners of expedited, safe and efficient service and support.”
