However by the research I've read recently, the trucking industry is in for catastrophic change in the next 10 years because it will become driverless and hydrogen or battery powered to minimise crashes and emissions.
Hybrid trucks are already in use with some companies, Star Track Express and I think
Toll use some of them for their local parcel deliveries, granted these are only light and medium rigids. Hydrogen I'm not sure about, CNG has been tried before but is pretty hopeless from what I recall, battery power for local trucks around cities would be very doable and may well become commonplace if Elon has his way.
For long haul applications battery storage isn't currently advanced enough to carry enough charge for a trip from Melbourne to Sydney, let alone the longer routes, unless they invent a truck that uses a 'battery pack' or similar thing that can be interchanged in a similar time it would take to fuel a regular diesel vehicle.
Driverless vehicles still have their issues at this point in time as we've seen in the news recently, I imagine they might be viable around town again if all the bugs are ironed out, but out in my neck of the woods our infrastructure is so non-existant that I can't imagine them taking hold out here for a very long time.
Hell, our roads are still spray seal and half the the time they can't even get that right, one hot day and the bitumen is bleeding through the aggregate!
Our roads are also very rough for the same reasons, and bumps and vibration does bad things to electronics, here's a case in point:
I drove this truck for the better part of a year, nice vehicle, very powerful and comfortable, chock full of electronics, adaptive cruise control, collision detection, lane keeping, all the bells and whistles. The problem was that all that shaking and rattling started to mess up the electronics after a while, the collision detection would go off for no apparent reason automatically slamming the brakes on (not ideal on a 160t vehicle), in rain the computer kept thinking the vehicle had wheelslip issues automatically reducing power in order to 'regain traction', this and a myriad of other issues with it eventually got the entire fleet of Mercedes replaced with Kenworths.
Out here the trucks have to be simple, rugged, and reliable in order to survive - so I doubt we'll see driverless trucks in this neck of the woods anytime soon.
