Locomation announced it will equip a minimum of 1,120 trucks operated by Wilson Logistics so pairs can be deployed in what the technology company calls an autonomous relay convoy — describing it as the first fleet purchase order for autonomous technology.

The deal would essentially double the size of Wilson’s existing 1,000-truck fleet, and the first will be delivered with the technology in 2022. It follows a successful testing earlier this year using safety drivers in Locomation tractors pulling Wilson’s trailers back and forth along 420 miles of I-84 from Portland, Ore., to Nampa, Idaho.
