Technology to replace Truck Drivers
The trucking industry needs more drivers to meet rising demand, especially from retailers who are under pressure to deliver to customers as fast as Amazon. A trucker's lifestyle — which requires long hours on the road, heavy lifting and weeks away from home on long hauls — hasn't appealed to younger workers. Self-driving and semi-autonomous trucks, like those in development at Embark, TuSimple and Tesla, could help fill the gap.
