Autonomous Cargo Ships are becoming a thing...Is this the solution to our sealift of heavy equipment?

We've all seen the reports of how badly our snap deployment exercise of our sealift went.  Could autonomous ships be the solution?  I'm not sure but imagine a high speed heavy lift ship that could be loaded with gear, given coordinates and then sent on its way at a moments notice.

Hell if prestocked it could allow basing of our gear in the Continental US, and if they're fast enough arrive 5- 10 or so days later anywhere on the globe...if things look like they're going south then early deployment could even send a signal that would rival diverting an aircraft carrier.
