This article on freightwaves suggests that if Uber freight left the industry it would be detrimental. All the while basing it on their “prestige”? And trying to coin the phrase “Make freight sexy again” is not helping your cause. Ryan Schreiber claims correctly that technology will take companies to the forefront but with many transporters that Motherload as spoken with, they are giving rates that are lower than expected and uber is hurting the freight industry.
I will gather this article was more on the basis of courting uber to get an exclusive interview with Freightwaves. I suggest not coming to any decision based on this singular article. Maybe go and get on some facebook groups where drivers are giving the real feedback on uber freight and it’s potential demise.
