All About U Route

U Route was founded in 2007 because legacy TMS was way too expensive and way too difficult to use.
A Web-based / SaaS (software as service) platform solved the pricing barrier and emphasized immediate ROI (return on investment) for shippers. Logistics can be fast paced and super complex, so the challenge was to make U Route powerful and simple at the same time. This is what separates U Route from other software options.

We make logistics easy. Easy procurement and easy implementation equals immediate cost reductions. At this time, U Route services shippers and carriers in the United States and Canada, but we are looking to soon be operating in Mexico.

Developed to provide shippers and carriers with modern, web-based transportation technology at an affordable price.

Given that most enterprise TMS Software is very expensive and difficult to deploy, we saw the opportunity to provide powerful software that was simple to use and emphasized an immediate ROI.
By utilizing a SaaS (Software as a Service) model, U Route brings modern operational platforms to shippers and carriers at an affordable price, plus full implementation typically takes weeks, not months.
