TuSimple, a global self-driving technology company with a focus on heavy-duty trucks, has secured property in Hillwood’s AllianceTexas’ Mobility Innovation Zone (MIZ) in north Fort Worth. The new operational facility will be the first urban logistics center in Texas for TuSimple.
The Hillwood-developed truck terminal will support the company’s continued expansion into Texas and connects into TuSimple’s cross-country autonomous freight corridor. Construction is slated to begin next month.
“TuSimple is the perfect partner for Hillwood in our efforts to accelerate innovative mobility technologies within the MIZ,” said Ross Perot, Jr., chairman of Hillwood.
Lee White, VP of strategy at TuSimple, added, “TuSimple is building the world’s first autonomous freight network and an important part of our strategy is to secure suitable locations for our terminals, and the Mobility Innovation Zone is exactly what we were looking for.”
TuSimple plans to demonstrate driverless operations in 2021.
