Uber Freight: Uber for long-haul truckers

Uber keeps on truckin' with Uber Freight

Uber has just unveiled its new spin-off to its ride-sharing service, something it is offering long-haul truckers: Uber Freight.

 

 

Uber Freight looks like it'll be very similar to Uber, but a truck driver can select a load to pick up in the app, work out the payment method, destination, and deadline. Within seconds, the truck driver receives the confirmation, and away they go. Uber explains: "We take the guesswork out of finding and booking freight, which is often the most stressful part of a driver's day. What used to take several hours and multiple phone calls can now be achieved with the touch of a button".

 

Truck drivers are protected with Uber promising payment within 7 days, and unlike normal Uber, the company won't be charging Freight drivers their normal commission. Uber Freight is available to both iOS and Android devices, with truck drivers requiring the right insurance, license, and equipment - of course.
