The European Space Truck is Ready

The Associated Press: European Ship Docks at Space Station The European space-going cargo-hauler is finally working as planned.
A new European cargo ship flew up to the international space station and docked Thursday, successfully delivering food, water and clothes in its orbital debut.

The unmanned cargo ship, called Jules Verne, was operated by flight controllers at a European Space Agency center in Toulouse, France.
A modern alternative to the shuttle (which is a lot of things, but not modern). This is good as the Space Shuttle is scheduled to stop flying in 2010.
