Russian trucking company Traft has unveiled a transformative strategy it hopes will reinvent logistics for an age of autonomous vehicles and on-demand services.

The company has taken steps to replace 20 percent of its fleet with vehicles that have autonomous capabilities this year. In 2018, the goal will double.

To ensure its employees aren’t left behind, Traft embraced another ambitious idea. This spring, the Moscow-based company helped its employees create a government-approved union to oversee extensive re-training programs and safeguard their rights in the future.
