Uber Freight is the name of Uber’s new project, the result of the purchase of a transport company and a freelance truck project that has already been tested for months.
Otto is the name of truck that will carry the goods we want without a driver present, as we can see in ot.to, a truck that already traveled more than 150km to carry beers inside the United States, without needing a driver constantly managing the address.
In my opinion this business model has different advantages, such as:
- Uber is already known.
- The technology tested in the transportation field for passenger can easily provide a more efficient truck coupling.
- Since August Uber has been active in 66 countries and 515 cities.
- Saves the driver’s cost and also the limitation on the number of hours driven per day.
