Platooning Technology

Platooning technology in freight shipping definition and illustration

Platooning Technology:

Platooning technology is a special technology that’s used for the management of synchronous movement of groups of automobiles or trucks (platoons). This includes following the lead vehicle, keeping the right distance between the vehicles, breaking at the same time, as well as splitting and merging.

Platooning lowers fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of the platoon by lowering air-drag friction. You can think of a platoon in freight terms as similar to a freight train, only on a road.
