Uber Freight goes global starting in the Netherlands
Uber Freight has announced that it is expanding operations into Europe, and has chosen the Netherlands as its launch market based out of the Uber Amsterdam headquarters. Founded in 2016 in the United States, Uber Freight is offering an app based marketplace that seamlessly connects trucking companies with loads to haul.
“We believe that every load is an opportunity to improve, and grow, shippers and carriers’ businesses that choose to partner with us. With the European expansion, we are excited to expand our product offering to the European logistics community, and let them discover first hand some of the benefits such as 7-day carrier payments or real-time access to price and capacity.
The Holland International Distribution Council (NDL/HIDC) has played a significant role in connecting us with key local stakeholders during our initial research efforts. In these meetings, we listened and learned a lot. This has helped us better understand expectations and how to best adapt our model to local specifics and needs”, mentions Daniel Buczkowski, Head of Europe Expansion for Uber Freight.
