Uber brings Uber Freight to the Netherlands. The service linking truck drivers and clients has been active in the United States for two years and is now coming to Europe. The Netherlands is the first European country where Uber enters the freight market. The company, which is best known for its taxi app and meal delivery service Uber Eats, will do so in the coming weeks. With Freight, Uber proposes to make it easier for companies to find a carrier. Moreover, the price does not have to be negotiated and the app can continuously monitor where the load is. For carriers it would be easier to find new orders and payment would be arranged quickly. Uber emphasizes that not only small self-employed people, but carriers of all sizes can use Uber Freight. According to the American company, the European transport market has a value of more than 350 billion euros. Moreover, one fifth of all truck kilometers is covered without freight and there is an acute shortage of drivers. Uber believes it can make the market more efficient. The company says it will comply with all Dutch and European laws and regulations.
