The ground freight industry has seen some major shake-ups in 2021. With more consumers staying at home and opting for delivery, along with the stressors of rising fuel costs, port congestion, and labor considerations, freight has become a focal point across various industries as a vital component of a smoothly functioning society.
In the midst of these market dynamics, a technological development in the industry is causing even more of a stir – driverless trucking. In August, Walmart unveiled trucks that operate without drivers and fulfill orders for their grocery business. While this may signal an exciting new frontier on the part of technological advancement, and we support those who opt to spearhead this new method, we at GW Transportation Services will not be engaging in driverless trucking anytime soon. Here’s why.

A Focus on Safety
Though there are pros and cons to deploying driverless vehicles, we value the safety of your shipment as well as the safety of others on the road above all else. While driverless trucking is making huge advancements, the fact remains that this mode of transportation still has a long way to go before safety can be guaranteed for all. For instance, if the technology within the driverless vehicle malfunctions, accidents can easily occur – and we have all witnessed how often computers malfunction. Of course, with more time and development driverless vehicles have the potential to revolutionize the future of transportation; until that day, however, GW is committed to delivering your shipment traditionally and safely.
