TuSimple and Ryder System Inc. have announced a partnership that aims to leverage select Ryder fleet maintenance facilities to serve as terminals on TuSimple’s autonomous freight network (AFN). The announcement comes as TuSimple expands its footprint across the U.S. to meet rising consumer demands.

Through the partnership, TuSimple and Ryder will work together to identify existing Ryder facilities to serve as terminals along the TuSimple AFN. Terminals are secure facilities and serve as the start and endpoint for autonomous driving missions. These facilities can have multiple heavy-duty trucks and trailers come and go 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, the companies noted. By adding more terminals to TuSimple’s AFN, shippers and fleets will have better access to autonomous freight operations. Leveraging Ryder’s existing freight trucking terminals, TuSimple will be able to more quickly scale across the country without needing to build new facilities.

And in case you didn't here, TuSimple is also looking for drivers and offering up some nice looking pay on their website. Been hearing their ads for a while.


Paid healthcare, paid hotels, and up to $94k to start.
