Overhaul launches ‘Uber-for-trucking’ app

Overhaul recently launched its web platform and mobile app to address the needs of owner-operator carriers and shippers moving higher value, more sensitive cargo, the company announced.

The “Uberization of trucking” concept connects the needs of premium shippers to trusted professional drivers and operators eliminating the need to connect through third parties, according to Overhaul.

“With Overhaul, trusted drivers can thrive in an environment they get to design for themselves. We provide a secure method for shippers to move cargo with recognized and trusted drivers at our foundation,” said Barry Conlon, CEO.

The Overhaul team said it will leverage its network of contacts to line up higher end shippers and trusted owner operators (representing 91% of the US transportation fleet) in advance of the online marketplace launch mid-year.

“Overhaul’s proprietary technology, with advanced safety and security features, and managed logistics services guarantees a secure move that will satisfy enterprise-level customers,” according to the company. “Ultimately, resulting in increased visibility and security for sensitive and time-critical cargo at a reduced cost for shippers. Operators will benefit from the opportunity to build relationships with shippers while improving their cash flow based on performance criteria during ‘the haul.’”
