Uber is now in the trucking business: 'press a button, get a load'

May 19, 2017

The embattled ride-hailing company announced Thursday that it was launching Uber Freight, an app that connects professional truck drivers with shippers looking to transport big loads over long distances.

"We've been in stealth since late last year, moving loads in Texas and a few other places," says Eric Berdinis, senior product manager for Uber Freight. "Uber pioneered the notion of 'press a button, get a car,' and now we want to create 'press a button, get a load.'"
