Uber Freight

project44 FAQ

April 27 / US

What data will be shared with Uber Freight? 

GPS (location) pings from the ELDs in the trucks of consenting carriers while on an Uber Freight load. Hours of Service information is used only to calculate the ETA and is never shared with anyone.

What is Uber Freight using the data for?

Initially, we intend to use the GPS location data and ETAs to automatically track load location and status, which will mean fewer tracking calls for your dispatchers and drivers. In the future and more broadly, Uber Freight seeks to use consenting carriers’ telematics data to improve Uber Freight and project44’s product and service offerings for carriers and shippers.

What are the benefits of signing up for this program? 

In the short term, the Uber Freight and project44 pilot will allow Uber Freight to track loads in transit in an automated way that’s intended to reduce or eliminate tracking calls to consenting carriers’ dispatchers and drivers. Over the long term, sharing telematics data may enable Uber Freight to develop additional new tools and capabilities to improve its product and service offerings to carriers and shippers.
