Powerloop LLC is an Uber company (and an affiliate of Uber Freight) that rents trailers to carriers. With the launch of Powerloop, any eligible carrier can participate in this innovative trailer pool model, no matter their size. Powerloop is currently available in California and Texas and will be expanding in the future.
Drivers can pick up a preloaded trailer at a predetermined pickup location.
In most cases, the driver can drop off at a predetermined drop off location without extended downtimes, such as waiting to have their trailer loaded or unloaded, which often leads to detention. In the event a live unload is required, it will be noted in the load listing.
Shipments going from facility A to B and then B back to A could be local moves in the same city.
Powerloop allows carriers of all sizes to participate in the program.
Any carrier in Powerloop’s network can access any trailer. This results in higher asset utilization and can remove the need to keep a large volume of empty trailers on site.
Powerloop and Uber Freight work with carriers to get from point A to point B and back.
A carrier must complete an Uber Freight carrier packet and trailer rental agreement from Powerloop. Once a carrier is approved by Uber Freight, they are eligible to participate in the Powerloop program.
