Truck Platooning – A Report from the MAASTO Working Group and MAFC

The purpose of this report is to provide an understanding of truck platooning and how this technology can be adopted across MAASTO freight corridors in a uniform manner. Coordinated regulations across state boundaries will better serve and meet the needs of the industry. The overall goal is to develop a Midwest Truck Platooning Regulatory Model that provides for harmonization of regulations governing truck platooning across the MAASTO region.
