About the Team
Uber Freight connects shippers with carriers (truck drivers) much like how Uber connects riders with drivers. In the process of moving freight using the Uber Freight app, carriers contact the inbound phone support team to provide updates or receive assistance. Our team believes that empowering truck drivers will bring more open, efficient, and safe transportation to our roads. We are a team of sharp, self-driven individuals who are redefining the movement of goods around the world.
Freight Support Escalations Specialists sit within Uber's Center of Excellence (COE) in Chicago, IL. COEs are contact management centers dedicated to providing world-class customer support to Uber customers (riders, drivers, couriers, eaters, restaurants, etc.). Uber relies on the COEs to provide support for our community's toughest issues types, as well as to incubate support modalities and processes for new products and services. COEs pioneer how Uber manages support for customers around the globe.
At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 10,000 cities around the world.
