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

The Outrider System is able to precisely back multip types of semi-trailers to dock spots and loading docks – all without teleoperation or other types of human interaction.

Crucial to autonomous yard operations, autonomous backing into dock spots requires trailers to be on-center and in exact contact with the docks – all within finite spaces.

Georgia-Pacific is utilizing the Outrider System to autonomously move goods between its distribution center and the open road.

The Outrider System operates as part of daily operations at Georgia-Pacific’s Chicagoland distribution center. 

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

The Outrider System undergoes rigorous testing of autonomous trailer moves to and from parking spots and loading docks at the company’s test facility. 

Outrider’s autonomous hitching technology adapts in real-time to hitch to trailers of diverse heights, weights, and orientations.

Reliable, consistent tractor-trailer hitching is critical for autonomous yard operations.

Outrider yard automation moves trailers to and from loading docks and parking spots.

Multiple Outrider autonomous vehicles work in concert to perform the tasks in distribution center yards.

Outrider delivers a three-part integrated system for automating yard operations.

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

Vision-based robotics connect and disconnect brake lines between yard trucks and trailers.

Outrider dispatches autonomous vehicles to execute yard operations.

Management software is integral to executing Outrider’s 3-part autonomous system.

The Outrider System keeps employees and over-the-road truck drivers out of harm’s way.

Outrider is exclusively focused on automating all aspects of yard operations.
