The new logistics of driverless trucks

KPMG partner Tom Mayor discusses the advent of driverless trucks and how and where logistics companies should potentially plan their investments in an artificial intelligence-powered work environment.

Video transcript

VO: In May, the U.S. Postal Service tested driverless long-haul trucks. But logistics companies need to change more than just 18-wheelers for an AI-powered future.

Tom Mayor soundbite: Begin making your investments in yards close to the highway entrance and exit ramps.

VO: The lots will serve trucks that only operate on interstates. Now, without drivers, remote and less costly locations will make sense.

Tom Mayor soundbite: To lead in the autonomous future, it becomes critical to start building out those assets today.
