Platooning Technology

Platooning technology in freight shipping definition and illustration

Platooning Technology:

Platooning is a special technology for managing the synchronous movement of platoons, i.e. groups of automobiles or trucks, including following a lead vehicle, keeping right distance, breaking at the same time, and splitting and merging. Because of reduced air-drag friction, platooning lowers fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
