CloudTrucks teamed up with Uber Freight and COOP by Ryder to help qualifying rideshare drivers on the Uber platform break into the freight industry and keep essential goods moving across the country.
Rideshare drivers on the Uber platform who have a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL) will be able to use the CloudTrucks app to search for and book loads from top freight brokers, including Uber Freight.
CloudTrucks’ partnership with COOP by Ryder enables drivers to lease a tractor and trailer. CloudTrucks will handle the deposit so drivers can get up and running quickly and easily.
“Truck drivers are the backbone of our economy, and communities are depending on them now more than ever,” says Laurent Hautefeuille, head of business development and strategy and planning at Uber Freight. “Our objective at Uber Freight is to support all truck drivers whether they are industry veterans or just starting out, and we hope this partnership with CloudTrucks and COOP by Ryder will open up more opportunities for those already on the Uber platform.”
