Werner Enterprises will provide roadside assistance services and maintenance along TuSimple’s autonomous freight network in order to support commercialization in Texas.
TuSimple’s over 11,200-mile autonomous freight network, which extends between Arizona and Florida, allows freight to be moved via SAE Level 4 autonomous trucks. The network will be expanding to include major logistic routes in its next phase of development.
Werner Enterprises' nationwide network of 24/7 support will play a fundamental role in providing nationwide support to all TuSimple vehicles in operation alongside the network, TuSimple officials said in a press release.
Carriers will have their choice of service and support providers, including their preferred dealership, aftermarket service provider, or a Werner Enterprises authorized service center.
“The integration is further evidence of TuSimple's mission to ensure that every carrier operating on the TuSimple [autonomous freight network] has the best options for its fleet to receive immediate assistance for vehicles in the event that they require expedited service,” TuSimple officials said.
