Your profile is your free built-in marketing tool through uShip. Take full advantage of it to make your company shine! Get discovered when people search for you in Google. Have a webpage to add to your business card. Having a strong, detailed carrier profile is an important part of building trust with shipping customers, and letting them know your services and who you are.
uShip’s profile template includes sections for all of the important details to make you stand out, help you make a name for yourself, impress those customers, and get work.
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. This is a great place to show your personality and what you stand for, as well. That said, you can provide as much information as you want.
When you use uShip as your free load board, you’re in control of your own business. You can also add your terms and conditions and insurance information.
What to Include on Your uShip Carrier Profile:
- Insurance Information: keep it general – we don’t need your policy number.
- MC/DOT Numbers: when transporting some commodities, an MC (Motor Carrier) operating authority is required by the FMCSA.
- High-Quality Photos of Your Equipment: be sure to remove visible contact information.
- Company Description: Tell us about yourself, your services, your equipment, and why you’re the best at what you do.
- Your Terms & Conditions
Use your uShip profile to provide as much quality information as possible, and really show yourself and your transport services off to potential customers. If they like what they see, you’ll be filling your truck with shipments in no time.
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.
