COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Anheuser-Busch announced it successfully sent a self-driving tractor-trailer from Fort Collins to Colorado Springs.

The truck was packed with Budweiser before traveling the 120 miles on Interstate 25  to Colorado Springs.

Anheuser-Busch InBev worked with Uber Technologies to pull off the autonomous delivery.

The truck was made by Otto, a self-driving vehicle company acquired by Uber earlier this year for roughly $680 million.

A professional truck driver was on board to monitor the trip.

“We admire Otto’s vision that will shape the future of self-driving transportation,” said James Sembrot, the senior director of logistics strategy at Anheuser-Busch. “As we continue to partner with long-haul carriers to ship our beers, we hope to see this technology widely deployed across our highways to improve safety for all road users and work towards a low-emissions future.”
