Uber Freight Partners with Samsara for ELDs and Trailer Tracking

February 26, 2020

Today, Samsara is excited to announce a new partnership with Uber Freight that will help decrease the cost of compliance and increase efficiency for shippers, carriers, and drivers across the country.

Uber Freight will recommend Samsara as a strategic technology partner for eligible fleets with six vehicles or more—including the largest carriers on their platform. Eligible carriers will receive the following discounts on Samsara’s ELD and trailer tracking solutions, with a maximum discount of $25,000 under the program:

  • $50 discount per ELD: Uber Freight is offering a $50 discount per Samsara Vehicle Gateway (VG34), an FMCSA-approved ELD that offers live-to-the-second GPS tracking, WiFi hotspot connectivity, and streamlined HOS logging. Beyond compliance, VG34s can be used in tandem with Samsara AI dash cams for driver safety, coaching, and exoneration. 

  • $20 discount per trailer tracker: Uber Freight is also offering a $20 discount per Samsara Asset Gateway (AG24), which can be separately attached to trailers to provide continuous visibility into load location. This is particularly valuable for carriers who handle drop-and-hook freight. 

Participating carriers will share their device data with Uber Freight via Samsara’s open API, enabling significant efficiency gains and an improved customer experience. With better visibility into load location, Uber Freight carriers can reduce tracking calls to drivers and automate detention processing.

“Our goal at Uber Freight has always been to help carriers run and grow their businesses with ease, no matter their size,” said Guy Peterson, Senior Business Development Manager at Uber Freight. “We’re excited to partner with Samsara to offer discounts that help carriers lower their overhead costs and manage their fleets more efficiently.” 

In the future, our partnership will unlock additional benefits for participating Uber Freight carriers, including early access to preferred loads and quicker payments.

"We’re excited to bring Samsara’s easy-to-use platform to even more carriers across the country,“ said Iain Denham, Senior Director of Global Partner Sales at Samsara. “With a seamless integration between Samsara and Uber Freight, carriers and shippers will benefit from improved visibility and more efficient load matching.”
