TECHNOLOGY logistics company FORU Trucking and a provider of autonomous driving called Trunk have launched a joint venture in Beijing to make self-driving trucks a reality.
FORU Trucking focuses on the field of full-truck load transportation and is committed to applying technologies to actual commercialisation, forming a 'FORU Brain' with intelligent pricing, intelligent dispatching and intelligent service at its core.
FORU chief technology officer Guanling Chen has introduced the system after five years of market testing, saying it can help shippers reduce transport costs by 15 per cent and effectively improve efficiency.
FORU Trucking and Trunk have been cooperating on road testing of autonomous vehicles since the second half of 2019. They have completed tests on 10 routes with more than 300 tests, and accumulated effective testing data.
Mr Guanling pointed out that with the initiative of new infrastructure, autonomous driving is a new turning point in development and will bring revolutionary changes to road transport.
Trunk CEO Tianlei Zhang said that in the future, after the shipper places an order on the FORU Trucking APP, the platform will intelligently dispatch the self-driving trucks to help the shipper deliver the goods.
