Joseph Kane & Adie Tomer:

Automation has become one of the major ongoing stories regarding the future of the American economy.
 What began with the rise of robots – and loss of jobs – across manufacturing industries is now a full blown threat to traditional jobs across all industries, salary bands, and education requirements.
 The effects are wide-reaching, no job may be safe.
 On the surface, trucking seems to fit perfectly into this national narrative.
 Autonomous vehicles are one of the hottest developments in technology across the country, and an automated truck already delivered 50,000 cans of beer within Colorado last fall.
