Self-Driving Truck Maker TuSimple Hires Morgan Stanley To Help Raise $250M In Fresh Funding: Report

TuSimple is looking to raise up to $250 million in a fresh funding round, TechCrunch reported late Friday.

The self-driving-truck maker has hired Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) to help raise the funds, according to TechCrunch.

The investment bank is already sending out proposals to potential investors on why TuSimple is poised to succeed as a company, TechCrunch noted.

The California-based company is backed by Chinese technology company Sina Corp. (NASDAQ: SINA), graphics processing units maker NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA), supply chain company United Parcel Service, Inc. (NYSE: UPS) and South Korean original equipment manufacturer Mando Corporation.

TuSimple is valued at more than $1 billion, having raised at least $298 million to date, according to TechCrunch. The company competes with the likes of Tesla Inc.'s (NASDAQ: TSLA), Alphabet Inc.'s (NASDAQ: GOOGL) (NASDAQ: GOOG) Waymo, and Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER) in the self-driving technology space.
