Take the most of the new opportunities emerging in a changing landscape

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light many deficiencies in all societies world-wide, but it has also shown the importance of many sectors in the world. Logistics has emerged as one of the most important business to overcome the pandemic, either by the supply of medical equipment, basic goods or even all the online purchases during the lockdown.

Although the pandemic has shown what an important component logistics is for society, it has also exposed its weaknesses’ and the need for profound changes in the industry. Before the pandemic, the economic incentives stemming from globalization, were already pushing logistics to a digitalized form, but social distancing or online working are making such a transformation even more necessary.

Tesla will redefine the future of trucking with their new electric semi-truck

The production of this long awaited transport would start 2019 onwards

The Tesla Semi with its battery technology will give you superior acceleration, enhanced performance on steep terrains, an 805 Km range with maximum weight at highway speed and loads of other fascinating features. Elon Musk the CEO and founder of Tesla has stated at the unveiling event in Los Angeles that these trucks when driven in convoy is going to cost less than transporting goods by railways.

The semi-truck is packed with loads of safety features including lane tracking ability, auto braking and a windshield which is apparently ‘nuclear explosion proof’! Chucking a huge diesel powered engine has enabled them to push forward the driver’s seat allowing a much spacious cab for the truck drivers. As advertised by Tesla- “Semi is the safest, most comfortable truck ever. Four independent motors provide maximum power and acceleration and require the lowest energy cost per mile.”

Musk went on in greater details about the safety measures of the new Semi- ““Even if you’re in the truck and you have a medical emergency, the truck will stay in lane and gradually come to a halt and put on the emergencies. If it doesn’t hear a response from you it will actually call emergency services and get an ambulance. It is going to take care of you. It is going to take care of other cars. It is going to take care of pedestrians.’’

The Tesla Semi can be charged to 400 miles range within just half an hour. With a max gross vehicle weight of 80,000 lbs., the Semi is believed to bring about a massive change in the freight forwarding industry.
