Self-driving truck technology company TuSimple has added Werner Enterprises Inc.’s roadside service network to others that will provide support to customers operating in “driver-out” SAE Level 4 autonomous mode on the TuSimple Autonomous Freight Network.

Carriers will have their choice of service and support providers, including their preferred dealership, aftermarket service provider or a Werner Enterprises authorized service center.

Werner Enterprises ranks No. 17 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers in North America.

The TuSimple AFN network is operational from Arizona to Florida, with more than 11,200 mapped miles, and will be expanding to include major logistics routes in its next phase of development, according to San Diego-based TuSimple, which was founded in 2015. — Transport Topics
