Uber and truck Shipping
With Uber technologies being one of the biggest rides sharing businesses, they have decided to start a long haul trucking business. Uber is trying to expand the amount of trucks they have from six to fifteen. They are creating partnerships with different truckers. Starting next year, they will partner with other trucking companies to expand their fleet and start their shipping services. Uber technologies are pitching their services to several people them being, service shippers, independent drives as well as truck fleets.
By next year, Otto technologies will start freight services for warehouses and stores. Initially, Otto’s goal was to create self driving technologies but the development of self driving vehicles will not commence for another two decades. With uber being a Silicon Valley new start up business, people are skeptical of them creating a long haul trucking business. Ubers ambition for the start of the logistics will expand within the years and will soon be one of the top freight movers.
