FedEx president Fred Smith informed CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Tuesday that the business will make huge strides in its self-governing car efforts this summer season.

“You’ll see in late June an enormous effort towards autonomous trucks that move over the highway. Not in the city, where we think our drivers are better for the pickup and delivery of the long-distance vehicles,” Smith stated in an interview on “Mad Money.”

“We are a long way down the road to doing that. But we’re not going to get rid of our drivers. They’ll do the pick up and delivery and the dredge, if you will, and over time, I’m very confident autonomous trucks are on the way,” he included.

FedEx revealed it was evaluating self-governing delivery van in China in late 2021 through a partnership with Neolix, a self-driving logistics business based in the nation. FedEx has actually formerly introduced efforts towards self-governing car use, teaming up with business consisting of Nuro, DEKA Development Research, Aurora and Paccar.

The business revealed Monday that Smith will end up being executive chair and Ray Subramaniam, present chief running officer, will prosper him. The management modification will happen on June 1. Smith established FedEx in 1973 while Subramaniam signed up with the business in 1991.

FedEx stock increased 3.7% on Tuesday following the news.
