If you have not heard of Uber, it can be best be described as a casual taxi service. Say you need a ride from your home to the airport, rather than call a cab and have no idea when it will arrive, you go to the Uber app and request a ride. Uber puts your request out to their network. One of their drivers, private citizens in private cars, selects your ride. At that point, the app starts to track your driver and display on a map on your phone or other mobile device. You know exactly where your ride is and when it will arrive.
Well, the folks that brought you Uber are branching out to local LTL deliveries in Southern California. Take a look at this quick video to see out it works.
