Amazon eyes robot truck startup as it continues to hedge its bets on AV technology | The Verge

Amazon owns a robotaxi company, is testing courier robots that operate on the sidewalk, and is now looking to buy a large share in a robotic trucking venture. According to Bloomberg, Amazon recently ordered 1,000 autonomous driving systems from Plus, a California-based startup that specializes in unmanned tracking technology. Amazon is also looking to purchase a 20% stake in Plus, a move that could have major ramifications for the company’s global

distribution strategy. Hennessy Capital V, a SPAC that previously supported the public debut of EV startup Canoo, plans to merge with the company.
