Long Description:

uShip is the world’s largest and most trusted transportation marketplace, primarily serving the freight, household goods and vehicle shipping markets. Consumers and businesses can compare and book upfront quotes, name their own price or receive auction-style bids from over 325,000 customer-reviewed Transportation Service Providers, ranging from independent owner-operators to the largest freight carriers and brokers.

After reviewing published shipping rates and the uShip Shipping Price Estimator™ (based on proprietary freight data), customers can enjoy significant savings by naming their own price and posting their shipment on uShip. When carriers have empty space in their trucks or an empty backhaul, they use uShip to fill it at deeply discounted rates. Our advanced search tools and mobile apps allow truckers to find loads nearby and along their routes.
