United Parcel Service Inc (NYSE: UPS) has purchased a minority stake in the self-driving company TuSimple. The investment coincides with ongoing autonomous road tests the package delivery company is conducting on a busy freight route in Arizona. Some of the money will be used to expand new routes for UPS as well as for the overall development of the autonomous platform, a TuSimple spokesperson told FreightWaves.
The last time changes were made to hours-of-service (HOS) regulations in 2003, safety advocates succeeded in delaying implementation until 2011 through litigation in federal court that was based on claims the changes would be detrimental to truck driver health and highway safety. Tim Wiseman, managing partner at the law firm Scopelitis, anticipates some kind of legal tie-up this time around as well, with the rollout today (Aug. 14) of the latest proposed HOS changes by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). "Based on the number of pages in the rulemaking devoted to research and studies supporting the changes, I think [the FMCSA] was anticipating legal challenges," Wiseman told FreightWaves.
UPS's investment is aimed at helping the company better understand the requirements for "Level 4 Autonomous trucking in its network."
UPS (NYSE: UPS) venture capital arm, UPS Ventures, has made a minority investment in autonomous driving company TuSimple. The companies are testing self-driving tractor trailers on a route in Arizona to determine whether the vehicles can improve service and efficiency in the UPS network. This latest deal is an extension of the ongoing commercial relationship between UPS and TuSimple in which UPS has purchased transportation services from TuSimple.
UPS said on Thursday it has bought a minority stake in self-driving company TuSimple, and the world's largest package delivery company has been testing the startup's autonomous trucks since May on a busy freight route in Arizona. The investment by UPS Ventures, the venture capital arm of United Parcel Service Inc, underscores bets that autonomous vehicle technology can expand more rapidly in commercial vehicles than in robotaxis.
(Bloomberg) -- United Parcel Service Inc. is taking a minority stake in self-driving truck company TuSimple and conducting test runs with the startup.The undisclosed investment is part of an effort to understand what it would take to produce a fully autonomous truck, said Todd Lewis, who runs UPS Ventures. Developing a computer-driven truck requires advances in areas such as assisted braking and lane-change warnings that also could be used in traditional vehicles, he said.That desire to invest in technologies that serve current needs reflects a change at UPS Ventures, which was formed in 1997 as the Strategic Enterprise Fund. The $150 million fund was renamed and revamped when Scott Price, a former Walmart Inc. executive, was hired in December 2018 as the courier’s chief transformation officer.“We’ve shifted gears into a capability-driven model,” Lewis said. “Not only are we looking to form deeper relationships with our investments, but we’re also equally looking to give them real-life problems to solve and have a real environment to test and scale into.”UPS’s freight forwarding business is providing cargo for hauling between Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona, on trucks guided by TuSimple’s autonomous system. A driver and engineer are also on board. The startup, valued at about $1 billion in a $95 million funding round in February, carried U.S. Postal Service trailers between Phoenix and Dallas in May.UPS Ventures has investments in 22 companies in areas such as robotics, blockchain, 3D printing and artificial intelligence and wants to increase that number, Lewis said.To contact the reporter on this story: Thomas Black in Dallas at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brendan Case at email@example.com, Tony Robinson, Susan WarrenFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Do headlines of a slowing global economy or volatile back-and-forth trade war threats have your attention? It may be time to look at the price charts of logistic stocks Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), FedEx (NASDAQ:FDX) and United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS) as stocks to buy or sell, and navigate the market and deliver more consistent profits to your portfolio.Today it's all about weaker global economic data out of Europe and Asia which is spooking investors. Yesterday, and quite literally at that, it was a welcome out-of-left field delay on levying certain Chinese goods by the Trump Administration which drove the market smartly higher. * 15 Growth Stocks to Buy for the Long Haul To say the least, the market's contrasting reactions are challenging. That's where AMZN stock, FDX and UPS shares come in as stocks to buy or perhaps sell short. Despite the dizzying and countering headlines from day-to-day, these three logistic plays are setting up nicely to deliver profits to bulls and bears in the weeks ahead.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Logistics Stocks to Buy or Sell: AMZN StockAmazon is the first of our three logistics plays. The tech and retail behemoth is far from a straight-up delivery company. Still, as AMZN stock continues to build out its own internal business network to bring its packages straight to your doorstep--it's a logistics power to be reckoned with.On the price chart, Amazon's wherewithal isn't as convincing. In fact, the technical picture makes this a stock to buy, but one which could quickly turn into favoring a short on AMZN stock.Currently shares are near a test of trendline, 200-day simple moving average and Fibonacci supports tied to cycle lows from December and March. It's an area where buying into AMZN stock weakness could prove to be a windfall.The flip-side for this stock to buy is Amazon shares have formed a double-top variation relative to last year's high. AMZN stock has also already broken a couple trend-lines over the past couple months. A third failure could get ugly. The AMZN Stock TradeFor this stock to buy I'd suggest waiting for a confirmation of last week's doji low and only buy shares above the pattern high. Appreciably, setting a stop-loss beneath the candlestick makes a world of sense and also makes the case for shorting AMZN stock on a breakdown of key support. FDX StockFedEx is the next of our logistics stocks to buy or sell. The company recently broke ranks with providing service for Amazon. Down the road that could be very hurtful for FedEx. But in terms of the company's entire logistics business, right here and right now, its small change. Nevertheless, there's no denying FDX stock is technically a stock to short.On the price chart, FDX has continued to paint a disturbingly bearish picture. The weekly view shows a downtrend which began in early 2018 and one which continues to weaken. Most recently, shares have broken below channel support within a bearish flag pattern that's formed beneath key price and Fibonacci supports. The FDX Stock TradeWith shares trading slightly below last week's flag breaking doji candlestick, FDX stock is ready for shorting today. For keeping exposure contained off and on the price chart, I'd suggest a blended stop-loss above $168. That works out to risk of around 7.5% and closing the position if shares of FedEx reverse back above the doji and channel resistance. UPS StockUnited Parcel Service is the last of our logistics stocks to buy or sell. And if the UPS stock chart has any say in the matter, this one is readying to deliver big profits to bullish investors. Back in early 2018 and similar to FDX stock, shares of UPS began to waiver technically. Unlike FedEx, by the spring of this year UPS stock cleared downtrend resistance. And it has only gotten better from there.Shares of UPS are now consolidating nicely above pattern and Fibonacci resistance. This sets UPS up as a stock to buy in anticipation of a pattern breakout to fresh all-time-highs in the second half of 2019. The UPS Stock TradeMy recommendation for UPS stock is to wait for confirmation of last week's doji low continuing to hold support. This can be accomplished by purchasing shares above $118 and slightly above Monday's initial trade through of the doji.Alternatively, buying UPS stock through $121.30 and the high of the consolidation is another route bulls can entertain. Either way, using the pattern low to minimize losses and protect one's portfolio from a stock veering off course makes fiscally and technically good sense.Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in securities mentioned in this article.
