The drive to save lives through innovation isn’t just a saying at Torc. Every day, our mission to develop the first profitable, scalable commercialized autonomous truck solution for over-the-road trucking applications is powered by our intention to save lives and improve our collective communities.

Torc’s visionaries and technology experts are keeping the lives of everyone in the freight journey in mind, as well as everyone it touches. Because in the end, it’s not about trucks or technology. It’s about changing people’s lives for the better.




“I am driven for safety.”

“I am driven for growth.”

“I am driven for development.”

“I’m driven for others.”

At Torc, we are driven for safety.

“I’m driven to work at Torc because there’s fast-paced development with high-energy people however, the main priority here is safety.

“We have learned the importance for our transportation industry. When I started learning more about Torc, I was so impressed with their focus that we are here to save lives.”

Torc is revolutionizing transportation one mile at a time. We’re driven for innovation.

“Everyone here comes off like as an innovator. Everyone is working always in the best interest of everyone on the project.

“The opportunity to work on this technology, in this field, I view as a privilege. But there’s a brief window of history I think that we’re in right now. In the next ten years, we’re going to see more change than we’ve seen in the last ten thousand. I think a lot of people aren’t prepared for the exponential synergies between multiple technologies.”

The freight network impacts more than just those on the road. Which is why autonomous trucks are developed with everyone in mind. It’s a mission we take seriously at Torc. Because we’re driven for people.

“This is going to be a game-changer when it comes to transporting our goods and services. Our population has more demands every year. The best way, the safest way, to facilitate that is to make sure that we value human life but also provide for it.”

“So whether you are sweeping floors or the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, at the end of the day, it’s all about people, no matter what we do, or where we are.”
