Locomation signs up 3rd trucking company for its autonomous technology

Locomation’s autonomous vehicle technology now has a third trucking company as a partner.

Stafford, Missouri-based Christenson Transportation will deploy Locomation’s autonomous relay technology on 500 miles of routes on three interstates operating out of its hub in Nashville, Tennessee.

Cetin Meriçli, Locomation’s co-founder and CEO, used the platform of the Truckload Carriers Association to make the announcement.

At the press conference announcing the signing, Don Christenson, CEO of the company that bears his family name, said the pilot would involve lanes out of the company’s Nashville hub of about 500 miles in length along Interstates 40, 24 and 65. At the press conference were representatives of the two other companies that have signed on with Locomation: Wilson Logistics, which was the first company to do so, and flatbed operator PGT Trucking.
