Moving what matters when it matters most
The freight industry is the lifeblood of the economy. Demand for essential goods has grown, directly affecting the shippers and carriers who are on the front lines of producing and delivering these goods. As we face the challenges of this health crisis together, Uber Freight remains committed to supporting our carriers and our shippers.
Committed to helping
Uber Freight is working with carriers and shippers to ensure critical supply chains continue to keep the economy and relief efforts in motion.
Moving essential supplies
Since the crisis started, Uber Freight has moved more than 1 billion pounds of emergency relief supplies including food and water, hospital beds, and face masks. Hundreds of these loads were booked at zero profit.
Keeping truck drivers and carriers safe
Uber Freight is striving to keep drivers safe and healthy by distributing free sanitization kits, face masks, care packages, and Uber Eats credits. We’re also offering free coronavirus telehealth assessments.**
Supporting communities in need
Collaborating with other companies, we’re donating deliveries of essential supplies, such as PPE, to healthcare facilities and food banks across the country.
Important information for carriers
During this challenging time, Uber Freight is committed to the safety and well-being of carriers and their drivers, who keep freight moving and essential supplies stocked.
Safety at facilities
Your health is our priority. At facilities, consider remaining in your cab as much as possible and wearing gloves to minimize contact when handling objects touched by others, including door handles and diesel pumps.
Dining credits on us
Through June 1, 2020, truck drivers who haul Uber Freight loads in the US will receive $20 in credits weekly toward any meal ordered with the Uber Eats app.*
Important load details
Check your rate-con and in-app load notes to get up-to-date information and guidelines from shippers, like reduced hours, altered check-in processes, and more.
Cleaning spray for your truck
We are working to provide cleaning sprays to small carriers who use Uber Freight. Note that supplies are limited.*
Sharing advice to stay healthy
We’re reminding everyone who uses Uber Freight to follow advice from public health authorities. If you’re sick, stay home and away from others. Wash your hands frequently, and cover your cough or sneeze.
Important information for shippers
Uber Freight is fully committed to keeping freight moving during this critical time. Our platform operates 24/7, allowing shippers to book, price, and track loads online, day or night. Our digitally enabled network of carriers can provide capacity at any hour.
Business continuity plan
All Uber Freight employees are able to work from home. As a technology-first company, our booking and operating platforms are entirely cloud-based, enabling all work to be performed remotely.
Uber Freight is committed to helping small shippers manage the increased costs during this critical time. Through April 12, all FMCSA emergency relief loads booked using the Uber Freight shipper platform were priced at zero profit for Uber Freight.*
We are actively passing along instructions and policy updates from our customers to ensure that carriers are prepared to comply with the requirements needed to service loads.
We remain in close contact with public health organizations and continue to monitor developments. We will communicate any new information we receive to our customers, like in our weekly email updates.
