CADIAT has introduced a new approach to next-generation transportation with the release of their Class 8 electric autonomous heavy-haul trailer. This autonomous system is designed to allow operators to safely increase payload per driver while reducing the cost of fuel. The long-haul trucking and logistics industry is in peril due to the low margins, high costs and poor working conditions. Yet demand is expected to double in the next 10 years. The industry is currently over 1M drivers short of demand and rising quickly. Plus new regulations will force eets to get clean or stop operating.

With this autonomous system, CADIAT has pioneered the intelligent trailer with distributed battery-hybrid powertrains. Think untethered trains for the road. By doing so operators save 90% on fuel costs while increasing productivity per driver exponentially. All while eliminating emissions and the majority of safety hazards.
