Thoughtfully engineering the way your things move.

Kodiak Robotics was founded in 2018 to develop autonomous technology that carries freight forward—so people, partners, and the planet thrive. Navigating highway environments present vastly different challenges than urban streets. Kodiak’s experienced team has developed the industry’s most advanced technology stack purpose-built for long-haul trucks.

Don Burnette, CEO & Co-Founder of Kodiak Robotics, talks about building a smarter autonomous trucking carrier.

Built for People

We’ve learned from countless industries—from aerospace to elevators—how the utilization of different types of automation can make things work more efficiently and also eliminate risk. And that’s exactly why we’re developing this technology for trucking. When successful, our trucks will improve safety, enhance truck driver quality of life, increase efficiency, and reduce congestion and emissions.

Built for Business

Trucks deliver over 70% of all products shipped each year, but drivers today simply can’t keep up with demand. We believe that our technology is the key next step to filling the supply/demand gap in order to keep businesses moving and customers happy. We truly are on the brink of a revolution in logistics.

Ship with us

Now delivering. Disengage free.

From the beginning, we’ve focused on building self-driving technology for long-haul trucks. And always with an eye on deployment, not demos. This discipline has allowed us to make rapid progress. Just two years after we received our first truck, we started making disengage-free deliveries.
