The implementation of autonomous vehicles in logistics can offer a significant solution to the growing driver shortage. However, an important barrier to implementation is the financial investment needed to adopt autonomous vehicles. In this article we present a methodology to calculate the business case of autonomous vehicles and demonstrate this methodology in two case studies. Despite the initial increase in equipment costs, our results show substantial benefits in terms of personnel costs, CO₂ emissions and required amount of personnel. By analyzing the two case studies, we identify which factors influence the business case and provide valuable insights for other companies interested in the business potential of autonomous vehicles.
