On March 9, 2022, I published this on our Facebook page and other trucking groups on Facebook:

The video linked below has the title "Take a look inside Alibaba's smart warehouse, where robots do 70% of the work, with 300% more efficiency".

No doubt, this is what some of the movers and shakers in the trucking industry want for the movement of big trucks: complete automation.

However, there are some large differences between what's shown in the video and the realities of trucking.

Let's see if we can name them.

[I] will start:

All of these robots are working in a controlled environment where individual robot movements are precise and automated, whereas vehicles on the road operate where the environment is not controlled and individual movements are far from precise.

Your turn, please.

Truckers, if you haul anything liquid that can leak, please be sure that you following all sound operating practices so that you will never have a spill.

 

11. Regarding violations, theft, and pollution:
