ONE20 Beats Uber Freight for Convenience and Value

ONE20 free membership keeps more money in drivers’ pockets, with maximum savings, dozens of benefits and no hidden fees

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--()--With all eyes on capacity, major transportation players such as Uber Freight are looking to capitalize on the imminent shortage of professional truck drivers. Establishing a freight marketplace that allows drivers to secure freight through an online and mobile platform is a great start for streamlining over-the-road components of the supply chain.

“Rather than catering to driver needs and wants, their programs are riddled with hidden fees, restrictions and critical gaps in available services. Independent truckers know a good deal when they see it, and these offerings simply don’t measure up with what ONE20 provides.”

The use of load boards is a smart way to fill the gaps between higher-yielding loads and the needs of many independent owner operators and small fleets. Securing freight is imperative for drivers, but shippers, carriers and brokers take advantage of drivers all too often. ONE20 believes that value-added services and benefits shouldn’t be tied to a fleet, a broker or shipper, but to the individual putting in the effort – the driver.

Many organizations, including Uber Freight, are looking to provide added benefits as part of their recruitment and retention efforts. Unfortunately, these value-added services are often tied to contracts, hidden fees and tricky terms and conditions. Benefits are then similarly tied to the source of each load instead of providing unencumbered savings and value for the individual drivers themselves.

In an effort to help maintain the independence sought by American truckers, ONE20 is offering expanded free membership benefits that exceed the value of any and all association, load board, shipper and broker offerings. Potential savings now total more than $24,000 annually for ONE20 members, while the cost of membership remains free. ONE20 cautions drivers to research options before signing up for something tied to shippers and brokers and look instead at how a free ONE20 membership can help their businesses save money.

“The Uber program for freight and fuel is fairly pedestrian,” said ONE20 founder and CEO Christian Schenk. “Rather than catering to driver needs and wants, their programs are riddled with hidden fees, restrictions and critical gaps in available services. Independent truckers know a good deal when they see it, and these offerings simply don’t measure up with what ONE20 provides.”
