Uber Freight launches to connect truck drivers with available shipments | TechCrunch
Uber is now the ‘Uber for trucking’ – Uber Freight is a new service from the ride hailing company that pairs up trucking companies, including independent operators, with loads that need to be hauled from one place to another.
