I think it’s inevitable that autonomous trucking will capture a share of the marketplace. However, I would venture to guess that it will be a specialized market in that there are many types of freight that absolutely require a human operator. A good example would be chemical or gas delivery. I seriously doubt automatons would, anytime in the foreseeable future, be turning valves or monitoring offloads of serious chemicals.
