How Self-Driving Vehicles Could Change the Transportation Industry
While the average consumer might not realize it, every business owner, manufacturer, and third-party logistics provider knows that trucks touch virtually every corner of the economy. Trucks move food, cars, fuel, electronics and about a million other things. It should come as no surprise that the trucking transportation industry is valued at $700 billion. And that value is only projected to increase, especially with so much exploration and interest in self-driving vehicles.
Transportation companies including Uber and Tesla have already invested more than $1 billion in autonomous driving technology. They seem intent on making self-driving vehicles become a reality sooner rather than later.
