Uber Freight uses the GPS location data to improve efficiency by:
Reducing or eliminating location-request calls to dispatchers and/or drivers on loads in progress
Tracking loads booked via the Uber Freight platform
In the future, this data may be used for automatic processing of detention and other carrier accessorials.
Uber Freight may share location data with the shipper and/or receiver of a load to keep them informed of the location of their freight while in transit. In addition, Uber Freight may share this data with other third parties who require, request, or use such data in connection with transportation, logistics, delivery, and/or other related services arranged or performed by Uber Freight.
Uber Freight stores location data that can be tied to a specific carrier for 3 years. After 3 years, Uber Freight destroys the location data.
The dispatcher and/or driver will receive an average of 5 tracking calls per load. A carrier may also be at risk for deactivation due to being non-compliant with Uber Freight’s automated tracking policy.
Uber Freight will only share this location data with the DOT if we believe it is required by applicable law, legal process, or governmental request.
No, Uber Freight will not reimburse for data usage.
