Gig Economy rideshare provider, Uber, has launched Uber Freight, an app that matches trucking companies with loads to haul. According to Uber, vetted users download the app, search for a load, and then tap to book it. A rate confirmation is immediately forwarded, which eliminates a common anxiety in trucking about whether or not the load is really confirmed. The company stated that it is committed to paying within a few days, fee-free, for every load, claiming, “when things don’t go as planned or drivers have to wait longer than expected, we pay for that too.” Once a driver begins using the app, the published rates will be guaranteed and the app’s GPS will help track the status of the load, and prove to shippers when a driver arrived at a facility.
