There is no doubt that the problems facing Uber in the taxi sector make it take new ways to avoid future collisions. According to the latest announcement by the company, Uber is working on the construction of a new section of trucks called: Uber Freight.
On his Twitter account, Travis Kalanick, Uber’s chief executive, posted a picture of one of the trucks in Pennsylvania called “Uber Fruit” and did not give much details about the service. It is known that this is not the first time the company has invested in the truck sector, but the previous time was purely for advertising.
This time it looks like the Uber trucks are on the alert and ready. However, it is not known whether the trucks are self-directed or not, as we know that the company is currently facing a lawsuit against Waymo, a subsidiary of Google and Alphabet, where it faces charges of stealing automated command systems from within the company, the case.
However, the picture reveals what Uber is planning. We may see a section for shipping and trucking in the near future.
