Locomation’s action plan is centered around improving operating efficiencies and reducing GHG emissions in long haul road transport activities. Decarbonizing the supply chain is one of the world’s biggest sustainability challenges and opportunities.

We launched Locomation in 2018 to commercialize our deep expertise in robotics/AI and revolutionize long haul road transport operations. We have not only created the most cost efficient, fuel efficient and safest autonomous trucking technology system on the market today, but also prioritized and included people in the global transition path to full autonomy. Our strategy and practices seek to contribute to 5 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Approximately 29% of total U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are related to road transport. The challenges created by record GHG emissions, is reshaping the world around us, and demanding a forward-looking strategy for carriers and shippers. Locomation is part of the solution. Our proprietary Autonomous Relay Convoy™ (ARC) technology system reduces GHG Footprint by 22%.
At Locomation, we recognize two critical truths 1) what gets measured gets managed and 2) authenticity and credibility require third party verification in today’s environment. To ensure integrity of our process, we completed an independent environmental impact assessment report that uses a science-based, data-driven approach, grounded in the proven methodology of Life Cycle Assessment to validate Scope 1,2,3 GHG emissions.
People and Safety
Locomation’s initial approach begins with our Human Guided Autonomy™ system which prioritizes safety and includes skilled drivers in the path to full autonomy.
In addition to offering increased operating efficiencies and capacity (2x Cargo 2x Further 2x Faster), Locomation’s strategy factors people into the equation. Drivers are part of the AV transition and have a better quality of life (specialized training = higher salaries with more time at home) and our communities have safer roads and greater environmental sustainability.
At Locomation, we embrace the opportunity to do what is right for the planet and people in order to create a better world for all.
