A trade group recently proposed the creation of a corridor for self-driving trucks to deliver freight without passports or visas from Mexico to Canada, CBC reported.

The Central North American Trade Corridor Association is planning a study into the feasibility of the route that would run along Route 83, through Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota, according to the Canadian news agency.

The association wants to travel to communities along the corridor to gain support and is hopeful it can work with the U.S., Canadian and Mexican governments to streamline border crossings.

Autonomous truck technology is being pushed by companies like Daimler, who recently introduced a self-driving truck, and the manufacturer is pushing for governments to speed approval of the technology.
