uShip, the on-line transportation marketplace and cargo automation software provider, today announced several key landmarks, along with traction within its cargo automation initiative serving business customers, less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation customers and consumers within cargo’s “forgotten” $26 billion bigger-than-package (LTP) market.

“The $2.2 trillion cargo world may be sliced and diced in endless ways, but there’s a common thread of thought throughout: the demand for quicker, simpler and more affordable transportation, which have been core to uShip from the start,” said Matt Chasen, creator and CEO of uShip.

Large scale business relationships, exemplified through uShip’s venture with DB Schenker, among the world’s biggest logistics firms, showcases how businesses can use uShip PRO, the business’s business platform, to reach pricing and functionality transparency, real time bid/offer pricing, cellular tracking technology and auxiliary capacity through uShip’s on-line supplier network.

The uShip market continues to see growth within cargo’s “forgotten” $26 billion bigger-than-package consumer transportation section—vehicles, furniture, homes, boats, bikes, planes, pets, common and the unusual and more. This section has mostly been dismissed by conventional carriers given the cargo’s unstackable and generally unwieldy nature.

Nevertheless, entrepreneurial suppliers, from single-truck owner operators to midsize fleets, have adopted this bid-based chance on uShip, giving companies and consumers help from high transportation costs and logistical headaches.
