Uber plans to enter the trucking business -- the long-haul, truckload sector, in fact.
That's the gist of a story the Reuters news agency released on Thursday. The story is at best, let's call it unfocused.
For certain we're talking about the real Uber - the one that brings elderly ladies to doctor appointments, hauls drunks home at closing time, and provides thousands of part-time jobs. Or maybe it’s the Uber that's putting taxis out of business with thousands of low-pay, no-benefits workers. Kinda depends on your point of view.
We’ve had a flood of companies that refer to themselves as Uber for trucking; this one is the real thing.
