Gallery: uShip Connects Customers to Couriers for Efficient, Affordable...

 

uShip is an online transport marketplace that provides people with customer-reviewed courier services that can move hard-to-ship items. Transporters place competing quotes to win a customer’s business, which brings down delivery costs and makes transport more affordable and efficient. In effect, uShip can help consumers reduce the CO2 emissions on their deliveries, by ensuring their transporters are full and carefully planning routes to dramatically reduce van trips. Since 2006, 25,000 shipping customers have offset the CO2 impact of their deliveries on the uShip marketplace, representing 26 million offset miles by transporters.
