Service Provider Tools
uShip gives you all the tools you need to easily find, quote on, and manage loads. We have teamed with our partners to provide cutting-edge integrated solutions, from accurate routing and mileage to real time tracking, and are always working to develop new, innovative tools that
will make your uShip experience as efficient and profitable as possible.
Service Provider Tools Gallery
Find shipments that you can move quickly and easily. The Find Shipments tool is built on powerful technology that allows you to sort shipments in real time without ever needing to reload your page. You can customize this tool to find shipments that precisely match the routes or regions you run, categories you serve or even the price range of jobs you are looking for.
Find Shipments Now
Add your company to the largest transportation services directory on the internet. It's free to create your listing, and you are putting yourself in front of thousands of customers a day who can request a quote directly from you. The more active you are on the site, the higher you will rank and the more business you will attract.
Join the uShip Directory
Compare your rates to actual prices for quotes accepted in the marketplace. The Shipping Price Estimator factors in distance, weight, shipment category and even common trucking lanes to give both customers and service providers reasonable pricing expectations.

Save a search to get shipments you can service emailed to you every day. This is a great way to save time by putting new and updated shipments that meet your search criteria right in your inbox. After customizing a search with the Find Shipments tool, simply click the ‘Save this Search' button at the top of the page to start receiving daily listings.
Book it Now
Immediately book any shipment that displays the
Book it Now
icon. If you are SaferWatch monitored or have a feedback score of 5 or more and at least 90% positive feedback, you are eligible to instantly book these loads at the customer's Book it Now price. That means no waiting for customers to accept a quote so you can get on the road faster.
Quote on multiple shipments without the risk of overbooking and resulting cancellations. With Group Quoting, qualified service providers can "group" multiple shipments and set a limit on how many quotes from that group you can service. Once you reach that limit, uShip will automatically cancel all other quotes from that group.

Automate your quoting to help make sure you're always the lowest quote. Enter a Lowest Quote to automatically quote under other transporters until this price is reached. This is a great way to quote competitively when you’re on the road.
