Locomation’s latest partnership adds its autonomous tech on 500 more vehicles

Locomation Inc., based in Lawrenceville, announced it picked up another major partnership with a trucking company, the fourth in the past year for the budding autonomous trucking startup.

El Reno, Oklahoma-based Stevens Trucking Co. has signed an eight-year commercial agreement with Locomation that will look to deploy the Pittsburgh company’s autonomous technology across 500 trucks from Stevens, a multi-year deal that is tentatively set to start in late 2023 or early 2024.

The Oklahoma trucking company now joins Wilson Logistics, PGT Trucking and Christenson Transportation as the latest firm to partner with Locomation for future deployment of the Pittsburgh company’s technology on its vehicles…

Locomation’s total figure of trucks equipped with its tech now stands at an anticipated 3,100 units combined across all four of these companies should the startup deliver to these firms in the coming years.

Stevens Trucking’s footprint spans all 48 contiguous states, though its 400 employees primarily operate in Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Indiana, Illinois and Ohio.
