Self-driving truck technology developer Plus, which focuses on markets in China, U.S. and Europe, will provide Italian transport vehicle maker IVECO with its automated driving system, expanding the use of its technology in the logistics sector.

The two companies have signed a memorandum of understanding , under which Plus will incorporate its PlusDrive autonomous driving system into IVECO’s latest-generation S-WAY heavy-duty trucks, which will be deployed across China, Europe and other regions, Plus said in a statement on Monday.

The duo will also explore using IVECO’s liquefied natural gas engine system to power the jointly developed autonomous trucks in order to reduce carbon emissions, according to the statement.

“IVECO’s global footprint in over 160 countries will enable us to accelerate our commercial deployment and magnify the impact of our autonomous driving technology,” said Shawn Kerrigan, COO and co-founder of Plus, which is headquartered in Silicon Valley.

Last month, five-year-old Plus said that its PlusDrive system has been selected to power a fleet of trucks which are being deployed in an autonomous freight program piloted by Chinese package delivery service provider SF Express in China.
