How to Create a Profile on uShip

Your profile is your free built-in marketing tool through uShip. Take full advantage of it and make your company shine! Having a strong, detailed profile is an important part of building trust with shipping customers.

Our profile template includes sections for all of the important details our customers look for. Fill out the “About” Section with your company information: how long you’ve been in business, what you specialize in, your company vision, and more.

We’ll give you suggestions for what to include, and you can provide as much information as you want. You can also add your terms and conditions and insurance information.

We suggest including the following details to win the trust of shipping customers on our site:

  • Insurance information
  • MC/DOT numbers
  • High-quality photos of your equipment – be sure to remove visible contact information
  • A professional company description written in your own unique voice

The goal of a uShip profile is to provide as much quality information as possible to draw customers to your business. The more details and photos you include, the more likely another member of uShip is to feel comfortable booking with you.

As you fill out your profile, we’ll notify you of your percentage completed. Customers can’t view this percentage, so don’t worry if you need to skip a section because it doesn’t apply to you.

Be sure to take your time with your profile. This is your best chance at winning jobs. Shipping customers look at profiles just as much, if not more than your quotes on jobs.
