Trucking Industry Advances With Uber Freight

I’m Ed Smith, a Fresno truck accident lawyer. The rideshare company, Uber, has been recently recognized on its latest edition to its provided services. The company now offers Uber Freight, a free app on mobile devices that connects carriers with shippers. The app offers simplicity and high quality service to support their drivers and carriers.

What is Uber Freight?

Uber Freight is the latest innovation in the trucking industry. The service is powered by their free app in the Apple App Store and Google Play. Carriers may use the app to book a load with a single press of a button and receive the stated payment amount. The app goes into detail on how loads are paid. All of the loads through Uber Freight are under an exclusive contract with shippers.

Highlights of Uber Freight

Uber Freight is a trucking industry service aimed to reduce the hassles of trucking such as bad loads, downtime, paperwork, etc. Any carrier is allowed to download the Uber Freight app at no charge. Any carrier may sign up, submit their information and wait until they are approved to start working. Carriers are usually paid within 7 days of delivery load completion. Uber Freight is working towards paying their carriers sooner through future technological advances.
