Using its network of purpose-built L4 autonomous trucks and connected terminals along major freight lanes, TuSimple’s Autonomous Freight Network (AFN) seeks to address the acute and growing shortage of drivers while potentially reducing total cost per mile by 10–15%.

TuSimple has taken an integrated approach to developing a solution for autonomous trucks including purpose-built vehicles, custom algorithms, HD mapping, a terminal network, and a robust service offering. Our analysts believe its vertical integration is unique and essential to the success of the platform.
