Uber Freight, which spun out of Uber to become its own business unit in 2018, has offices in San Francisco and Chicago. The company has been scaling up its business since launching in May 2017, growing from limited regional operations in Texas to the rest of the continental United States. Uber Freight has bigger expansion plans for 2019, including Canada. The company plans to more than double its staff this year and is eyeing international markets. The company doesn’t disclose employee numbers. However, insiders target the number at “hundreds.” Uber Freight already has a dedicated team looking into international markets, the company confirmed.  February 15, 2019, www.ontruck.org
