    Bet they won't be the only ones. Guess they found out it costs big bucks to set up with little ROI.

    You know things are REALLY BAD when even a driverless company is laying off.
    I don’t think it can get any lower than that!

    As usual, paranoia sets in. Last year, the FBI, SEC, and Committee on Foreign Investment opened investigations into TuSimple over alleged ties to China-based startup Hydron Inc, Reuters reported.

    Well this can’t possibly be true, autonomous trucks were the next big thing in this industry. Just like LNG/CNG and platooning.

    You know what is awesome about this? They can't blame drivers for it! Drivers are at fault for everything, and I mean everything that is wrong with the world, from possible near Earth ending asteroids to the Covid hysteria. I am sure we had some sort of hand in the Black Plague and the dinosaur extinction event. But guess what you pencil necked gumbies, we didn't crash this pie in the shy company! Ha!!!

    Is there a thread on super-singles on here? I would really be interested to find out why someone thought that was a good idea.
