Our Vision

To become the world’s most efficient, reliable, and respected trucking carrier.

Our Values

Safety, first and always.

We believe that if it’s not safe, it’s not worth doing. It is our responsibility to bring this technology to life safely, and we take it very seriously. So much technology has been fueled by quick sprints and global, market-shifting ambition. We get that, but also know that without a keen focus on safety, ambition in our space is meaningless. We are thoughtfully building towards meaningful innovation and a sustainable business. Instead of the sale of a shiny demo, our functioning fleet will be the representation of our success.

Intellectual honesty, principled debate.

We believe that decision-making should be driven by truth and transparency. We’re constantly engaging in principled debate, challenging our thinking, and nurturing collaboration in order to sharpen each other’s ideas.

Disciplined innovation.

We believe that concentrating on a solvable problem is more valuable than moonshot development. We value elegant solutions over complicated features. Our years of industry experience has put the realities of business into focus and unveiled the limits of existing technology—it is within these constraints that we thrive. Today, our focus on middle-mile trucking gives us the traction we need to build an impactful business for ourselves and our partners.

Better together. For a better future.

We envision a future in which Kodiak trucks are a common—and welcome—sight on America’s highways. But we won’t get there alone. We need the top ecosystem partners to support our engineering efforts, we need skilled drivers on the road and back at home base to ensure our trucks are functioning optimally, and we need willing partners to trust us to ship their precious cargo. Whether the end goal is making roads safer, more efficient, or friendlier to the environment, collaboration across all sectors of the business is essential—today and well into the future.

Exceed expectations. Earn respect. Repeat.

We believe that earning respect is an ongoing task. By making the priorities of those we work for—and with—our own, we can navigate all challenges and deliver results for our customers. From pick-up to drop-off, efficiency and reliability are top-of-mind. And we’re constantly on the quest to design solutions that delight our customers while making their jobs easier. Our market is competitive, which ensures we have to work hard to win your business as well as your trust.
