And the test track doesn’t fool around.

I hopped inside a Freightliner New Cascadia Prototype and hit the three and a half mile track, or more accurately, the track hit me. I also sat down with Daimler Trucks’ recently appointed President and Chief Executive Officer Roger Nielsen, who underscored the importance of testing and the need for this new facility.
