Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Self-driving technology company Argo AI joins the ITF Corporate Partnership Board

US-based self-driving technology company Argo AI has joined the Corporate Partnership Board of the International Transport Forum (ITF). Argo AI and the ITF will work together on transport decarbonisation, automation and digitalisation.

Argo AI builds the software, hardware, maps, and cloud-support infrastructure that power self-driving vehicles. It collaborates with leading carmakers such as Ford and Volkswagen to integrate self-driving technology into their vehicles to enable new ridesharing and delivery services.

The ITF is an intergovernmental organisation with 63 member countries that facilitates global dialogue for better transport. It acts as a think tank for member governments and organises an Annual Summit of transport ministers. The Corporate Partnership Board (CPB) is the ITF's platform for engaging with the private sector and enriching global transport policy discussion with a business perspective.

Young Tae Kim, Secretary-General of the ITF, said:

"I am excited and delighted to welcome Argo AI to the International Transport Forum’s Corporate Partnership Board. Automated vehicles will play an increasingly important role in the changing mobility of the 21st century. The innovative prowess and deep knowledge of Argo AI in this field will be a true asset for ITF and the work of our Corporate Partnership Board. I look forward with enthusiasm to working with the Argo AI team."

Kate Kozlowski, Executive Vice President and Chief Legal and Compliance Officer of Argo AI, said:

“This decade will be pivotal for the deployment of autonomous vehicles at scale around the globe. At Argo AI, we are committed to developing self-driving technology to make getting around cities safe, easy, and enjoyable for all. As more and more countries are taking steps to create the legal and regulatory frameworks to enable AV deployment, we are excited to join the ITF Corporate Partnership Board and partner with governments and industry leaders to help advance their work on safe and sustainable transportation.”
