Waymo and trucking company JB Hunt have partnered to haul cargo loads autonomously between Houston and Fort Worth, TX.

The Class 8 trucks equipped with Waymo Driver autonomous software and hardware system will operate on Interstate 45 carrying a trained truck driver and Waymo technicians to supervise and intervene as necessary.

Waymo's Charlie Jatt said, "Our teams share an innovative and safety-first mindset, as well as a deep appreciation for the potential benefits of autonomous driving technology in trucking. It's companies and relationships like these that will make this technology a commercial reality in the coming years."
