Uber Freight and Aurora Expand Pilot to Autonomously Haul Goods for 2022 Holiday Season

Uber Freight | December 05, 2022

Uber Freight, a leading logistics platform and partner for shippers and carriers, and Aurora Innovation (NASDAQ: AUR), a leading autonomous vehicle company, have announced the expansion of their autonomous pilot with a new commercial lane between Fort Worth and El Paso. The 600-mile lane across Texas launched in October and is supporting Uber Freight customers as they prepare for the 2022 holiday season. As online shopping increasingly becomes the status quo around the holidays, so has the potential for delays, errors, higher pricing, and low product inventory. During peak season, it’s expected that approximately 1 billion packages will be shipped within the U.S. alone. To help Uber Freight customers meet demand, Aurora’s autonomous trucking service, Aurora Horizon, is making weekly hauls of consumer and wholesale goods across the state with its latest generation of trucks, based on PACCAR’s Peterbilt 579M. “The holidays are a challenging time for the logistics industry. We’re crafting Aurora Horizon to help carriers of all sizes alleviate some of the supply chain pressures that typically accompany them, Deploying our technology with the Uber Freight team over this 600-mile trip at the peak of the season is an outgrowth of our mutual commitment to ensure that Aurora Horizon can enable carriers of all sizes to safely and efficiently haul freight 24/7/365 on the Uber Freight network.” -Sterling Anderson, Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder of Aurora Veritiv Corp. (NYSE: VRTV), a Fortune 500® company, is a leading distributor of customized packaging solutions across North America. As an Uber Freight customer, Veritiv has benefited from early access to the route, using Aurora Horizon to autonomously transport goods on time to retail, education, and healthcare customers. The packages, which are hauled over 600 miles between Aurora’s terminals in Fort Worth and El Paso, complete their journey via human drivers who handle the first and final leg of customer deliveries across western Texas and New Mexico. Veritiv’s next-generation supply chain strategy is to create and sustain a competitive advantage in operations with innovative and efficient technologies, said Mike Walkenhorst, Senior Vice President of Global Operations and Developing Businesses for Veritiv. “This autonomous vehicle pilot aligns with our strategy to assess new technologies to determine the best fit for our business and our customers. We are proud to be at the forefront of testing this technology. Unlocking autonomous truck capacity for all carriers on the Uber Freight network Aurora’s autonomous technology is being developed to offer carriers a reliable supply of “drivers.” Testing and validating it during one of the busiest times of the year highlights its potential to respond quickly as demand rises and supply chain needs fluctuate. Autonomous trucks can also help alleviate what is often considered one of the least safe times to travel each year according to a report from the National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), allowing human drivers to opt for short-haul trips and stay closer to home. “Our extensive and efficient digital marketplace is a key ingredient for autonomous freight deployment, As the preferred marketplace for autonomous trucks, we are incredibly excited to partner with these two companies laser-focused on paving the way for a hybrid network, together. It’s an honor to get in the trenches with Veritiv’s commitment to next-generation supply chains and Aurora’s best-in-class innovation to better understand how autonomous freight can and will safely become a reality.” -Lior Ron, CEO of Uber Freight. As Aurora works with additional carriers on the Uber Freight network, the company will incorporate learnings from this pilot into its subscription service dedicated for carriers and private fleets. Aurora and Uber Freight aim to unlock autonomous truck capacity for carriers with Aurora Horizon, which will be deployed in the coming years and serve carriers across the Uber Freight platform. About Aurora Aurora (Nasdaq: AUR) is delivering the benefits of self-driving technology safely, quickly, and broadly to make transportation safer, increasingly accessible, and more reliable and efficient than ever before.

MxD Selects Anark’s Manufacturing Collaboration Platform to Modernize DLA Supply Chain Activities

MxD And Anark Corporation | December 06, 2022

The Digital Manufacturing Institute (MxD) has selected Anark to demonstrate a visionary solution for supplier collaboration. This project seeks to modernize acquisition and supply chain activities to improve acquisition and production lead times for the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). Additional objectives include improved decision traceability, synchronized version control, and a standard communication framework across sourcing activities. While file based Technical Data Packages are intended to contain all the necessary data about a product, these files lack context and insight from the experts that create them. The evolution from Technical Data Packages to a Technical Data Portal connects product data with the people and conversations that matter in a single digital platform. “We are very excited to start this project with Anark as we assist in the digital transformation for the organic industrial base, DLA, and DoD at large. Improving communication around engineering data across the supply chain will enable U.S. manufacturers to support the modern warfighter in a way that is cost effective for all.” -Federico Sciammarella, President and CTO at MxD Over the next year MxD and Anark will demonstrate how an integrated supplier portal that features contextual collaboration can help the Department of Defense (DoD) and suppliers of all sizes resolve procurement issues before they happen. The solution will solve supply chain challenges as outlined in the MxD RFQ 21-19 entitled TDP Data Exchange Demonstration: The Defense Logistics Agency purchases products on behalf of all the branches of service. They are tasked with collecting all the required product-defining-data before soliciting for bid. The files collected are in many different formats, bound by many distribution rules, and sometimes require specialized skillsets to manipulate the data. All the collection time adds to the lead time to get products where they need to be. After procurement if issues arise it is very difficult to trace back to activities around the transaction to take advantage of lessons learned or data collected from a supplier. About MxD MxD (Manufacturing x Digital) is where innovative manufacturers go to forge their futures. In partnership with the Department of Defense, MxD equips U.S. factories with the digital tools, cybersecurity, and workforce expertise needed to begin building every part better than the last. As a result, our approximately 300 partners increase their productivity, win more business, and strengthen U.S. manufacturing. MxD is also the National Center for Cybersecurity in Manufacturing as designated by DoD. About Anark Corporation Anark makes product data accessible and actionable across the manufacturing supply chain, so everyone can collaborate and innovate faster. Leading manufacturers such as Boeing, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, Ericsson, Cohu, Cisco, and the US DoD communicate and collaborate more effectively and securely, throughout the product lifecycle. As a result, customers reduce delivery risk and material waste, and deliver higher-quality products and services with substantial cost savings. www.anark.com
