FAQs

Do I need to be an Uber Freight TMS user in order to use Exchange?

No! Many of our shippers use third-party TMSs. You can sign up and use Exchange’s standalone contract and spot procurement capabilities alongside your TMS.

Some features in Uber Freight Exchange will only work seamlessly with a TMS integration (e.g. creating bids directly from TMS data). Please contact sales to discuss integrations to your TMS.

How does Uber Freight Exchange integrate with my TMS?

Out-of-the-box, Exchange operates as an extension of the Uber Freight TMS. That means if you are an Uber Freight TMS customer, on Day 1 you will be able to:

  • Initiate a bid based on TMS data
  • Sync RFP results automatically to your routing guide

Please contact sales to discuss integrations to third-party TMSs.

What does Uber Freight do with my bid data?

Uber Freight Exchange bid data is stored separately from Uber Freight’s brokerage data. This applies to both shipper and carrier data. Only the tech teams who build and support Uber Freight Exchange have access to view transactional level shipper RFPs and carrier bid data.

Uber Freight’s brokerage is treated the same as any other carrier who participates in a bid. Shippers do not have to invite Uber Freight’s brokerage to participate in Exchange bids in order to use the Uber Freight Exchange platform.

As a shipper, what happens to my carriers when I bring them to Uber Freight Exchange?

If the carrier is already an Uber Freight carrier, they will be able to log into Uber Freight Exchange using their Uber Freight credentials. Uber Freight may pre-populate certain information in the tool based on the carrier’s existing Uber Freight profile.

If the carrier is not already an Uber Freight carrier, they will be prompted to create a profile and will also have the option to sign up for the Uber Freight brokerage. Carriers will not be required to sign up for the brokerage in order to bid.

How much does Uber Freight Exchange cost?

The base version of Uber Freight Exchange is free to all shippers, regardless of whether the shipper uses the Uber Freight TMS.

Enhanced features in Uber Freight Exchange may be available for purchase. In addition, select features may be available as add-ons to Uber Freight TMS and Uber Freight’s brokerage offering.

What modes are supported?

Uber Freight Exchange supports full truckload (FTL) and intermodal (IMDL) bids. This includes multistop, tanker, hazardous materials, live, drop, and live/drop lanes.

What equipment types are supported?

Uber Freight Exchange supports Dry Van, Reefer, Flatbed, and Container equipment types.

What geographies are supported?

Uber Freight Exchange supports all origins and destinations in North America, including cross-border and intra-Canada and intra-Mexico lanes.

Does Uber Freight Exchange handle load execution?

Nothing changes with load execution when you use Uber Freight Exchange. You can continue to tender loads to your carriers using the solution(s) you have in place. Uber Freight will provide you with an award export to upload to your routing guide.

Who is responsible for running my RFPs and bids in Uber Freight Exchange?

Nothing changes in terms of procurement ownership when you use Uber Freight Exchange. If you use an outsourced procurement service provider, you can use the platform’s shared access features to collaborate on contract procurement events and complete bids faster and with less effort.
