Uber Freight Cheat Sheet for Trucking Owner Ops

Uber Freight Trade Show

Last Modified: February 3, 2023

Lots of questions out there on Uber Freight, so here’s a quick cheat sheet for everyone updated just today:

Uber Freight 

  • Operating in 48 states now
  • Requires active USDOT # with Satisfactory or None rating – NEW Startups OK
  • Requires 53’ Dry Van or Reefer (Straight Trucks are in the future)
  • Both short and long haul runs are available now
  • Standard Commercial Truck Insurance requirements are $1 Million Commercial Auto Liability, $100,000 Cargo, $1 Million General Liability

The Uber Freight website is user friendly, but for the Owner Ops insured here at CIS I personally like working with Operations Coordinator Branden Colen because he offers great individual attention to your questions at no cost.

He can be reached at 628.225.1396 or BrandenC@Uber.com

Give him a call or drop him a message today to see what he can do for you!
