Book it Now
Immediately book any shipment that displays the
Book it Now
icon. If you are SaferWatch monitored or have a feedback score of 5 or more and at least 90% positive feedback, you are eligible to instantly book these loads at the customer's Book it Now price. That means no waiting for customers to accept a bid so you can get on the road faster.
Bid on multiple shipments without the risk of overbooking and resulting cancellations. With Group Bidding, qualified Service Providers can "group" multiple shipments and set a limit on how many bids from that group you can service. Once you reach that limit, uShip will automatically cancel all other bids from that group.

Automate your bidding to make sure you are not underbid. Enter a Lowest Bid to automatically underbid other transporters until this price is reached. This is a great way to bid competitively when you’re on the road.
