From trucking to last mile delivery, Waymo Via has you covered
Whether it’s Europe, China, or here in the United States, most goods that we use and rely on everyday get to their destination by truck. Around 70 percent of all freight moved in the United States travels by truck, making it the leading freight transportation mode. Add in smaller local deliveries to and from retail storefronts, and even your front door, and you can see why transportation logistics isn’t just about moving things from point A to B. It’s about keeping the world’s economic engine running.
