A critical link in the supply chain, distribution yard operations transition goods between the warehouse and the open road.

The Outrider System autonomously moves trailers to and from loading docks and parking spots in distribution yards. 

Exclusively focused on automating all aspects of yard operations, Outrider helps increase the efficiency and improve the safety of distribution yards.

The Outrider System operates as part of daily operations at Georgia-Pacific, autonomously moving goods between its Chicagoland distribution center and the open road.

Multiple trailer moves are dispatched and monitored onsite or remotely – all without teleoperation or other types of human interaction.

Outrider’s autonomous yard trucks back trailers of all types into tight spaces with precision and without modifications to trailers.

Outrider delivers reliable, consistent tractor-trailer hitching that is critical for autonomous yard operations.

Designed to mimic enterprises’ distribution yards, the Outrider Advanced Testing Facility is the first of its kind dedicated to yard automation technologies. 

Outrider yard automation helps drive the adoption of sustainable freight transportation by using electric yard truck platforms.
