Making every hour count can be tough for carriers and their drivers. Finding and booking loads that are going in the right direction, at the right time, is often time consuming and frustrating. This past August we launched a suite of personalized load matching features to help deliver a better, more intuitive load matching experience to our users. Today, we are announcing two new additions that deliver an even more seamless experience and help our carriers and their drivers maximize their time and productivity.
Post My Truck
By matching carriers and their drivers to available loads that meet their specific needs, ‘Post My Truck’ helps make sure a driver’s truck is always utilized. Via the ‘My Loads’ tab, app users input when and where their truck(s) will be empty and whether they prefer local, short, or long-haul; the Uber Freight app then previews a list of available loads that match their criteria and sends push notifications as additional loads become available. ‘Post My Truck’ lets drivers find exactly what they want, when they want it, and book instantly.
The ‘Reloads’ feature keeps carriers and their drivers moving and earning by minimizing empty miles. With ‘Reloads’, when carriers and their drivers go to book a load through the app, Uber Freight will preview a list of backhauls and reloads — loads picking up near their drop off location — that they can book next.
Carriers and their drivers can find ‘Post My Truck’ on the app now and will see ‘Reloads’ in the coming weeks — on both Android and iOS. We’re always looking for ways to improve our app, and feedback from our users is instrumental, so if you have ideas or just want to learn more, get in touch today.
