In the meantime, these truck drivers are finding their loads on auctions such as the ones that are conducted by uShip. In fact, uShip is considered to be the world’s largest online auction house which is constantly being used by independent truck drivers.
To put it in perspective, the auctions that take place on uShip are in fact done as a reverse auction format, that is to say, the carriers are engaged into placing bids on one or more jobs that have been listed.
Nevertheless, the clients during these auctions have an option and opportunity to give awards, either to the lowest bidder or to higher bidders, all that can be done by previously given feedbacks.
Only after a carrier wins a bid, only then he is allowed to load his truck and to start the load transportation process.
This reality trucking TV show is without a doubt one of the best trucker shows, it is well made, and it is easy to watch.
