Kodiak Robotics expands autonomous freight service to Florida with USPS partner 10 Roads Express

July 26, 2022

To launch this partnership, Kodiak completed a round trip consisting of four commercial deliveries, including a coast-to-coast commercial run.

A Kodiak autonomous truck carried 10 Roads Express freight nearly 5,600 miles from San Antonio, Texas; to the San Francisco Bay Area; to Jacksonville, Florida; and back to San Antonio. The route was completed in just 114 hours.

Using its unique lightweight mapping solution, Kodiak mapped more than 5,400 new miles in a single mapping run to bring the new route online.

Don Burnette, founder and CEO, Kodiak, says: “We are focused on servicing routes that fit the real-world needs of our customers.

“10 Roads Express’s network of long length-of-haul routes makes it an ideal partner for Kodiak. Our unique lightweight mapping system allowed us to expand into Florida in a fraction of the time it would take to build traditional autonomous vehicle maps, enabling us to service some of the nation’s busiest coast-to-coast freight lanes.

“This expansion further demonstrates the scalability and flexibility of our autonomous solution, the Kodiak Driver.”
