Truck Insurance Wholesaler Researches Future Potential of Self-Driving Trucks

InsuranceTruck.com Looks at Self-Driving Future of $700 Billion Trucking Industry Race between Silicon Valley juggernauts such as Uber and Google to get autonomous vehicles on the road first heats up.

Carlsbad, United States - April 12, 2018 /PressCable/ —

InsuranceTruck.com, a California-based truck insurance wholesaler for independent commercial agents offering a software-oriented quoting system for auto liability and MTC, has been contemplating the self-driving future of the $700 billion trucking industry, what with Silicon Valley juggernauts such as Uber and Google in a heated race to get their autonomous trucks out onto the road first.

“We’ve talked to some truck drivers who wanted nothing more than to achieve the American dream, climbing the rungs of the industry ladder from company drivers and parts managers to independent owner-operators and trucking depot managers,” states a spokesperson for InsuranceTruck.com. “Many of these people have turned their careers in the direction of autonomous – or self-driving – trucks, which industry leaders see as the future of the 700 billion-dollar trucking industry, with some even launching their own startups that develop trucks to be fully autonomous on the roadways of America.

“In these scenarios, remote drivers then take command of the vehicles from offices boasting arcade-style consoles. It’s all left everyone in the industry asking, ‘Who would have thought a semi would be driving itself?’”

According to InsuranceTruck.com research, this strategy is still in its testing phase, with programmers testing and tweaking trucks’ sensors and software, but many drivers interested in the self-driving technology have already cited reasons for being optimistic, including being able to be home more often. And, say InsuranceTruck.com reps, while there are people who are apprehensive about the technology because they don’t understand exactly what is involved, there are plenty of experienced drivers who are contributing to making the autonomous trucks as safe as they can be on the highway.

A number of interested drivers believe working remotely will ultimately make their lives better, and that the growing need for remote drivers means there will be plenty of trucking jobs in the future.

As an insurance wholesaler for independent commercial agents, InsuranceTruck.com offers assistance in the areas of hard-to-place risks, non-standard markets and high-risk insurance.
