Rotterdam - After launching in the USA, Uber Freight, the app that matches carriers with shippers, is expanding its operations in Europe. It will start in the Netherlands wherein the coming weeks, local carriers and drivers will be able to book and move their first loads with Uber Freight.
Small- to medium-sized carriers in the EU make up more than 85% of the total carrier pool, and just like in other international freight markets, they experience the most difficulty connecting with larger shippers.
“When you combine these shortcomings in the market - writes a press release by Uber Freight - the price of goods goes up. A more efficient and transparent freight marketplace is something Uber Freight can bring to the table that will pay dividends to all, as well as reduce wasted miles and fuel.”
