Uber last week officially launched Uber Freight, the company’s new service that will match truckers with companies who need cargo shipped across the country.

Uber Freight has its own app, which is available on iOS and Android. There’s a sign-up page for drivers, who will be vetted before they’re allowed to use the service.

The video announcement Uber released makes the process look as simple as using its existing cab service. The app is full of a list of available jobs and the routes they require, and each listing tells the driver what they’ll be hauling and how much they’ll be paid. Once they arrive in that destination and make the delivery they can then, like an Uber cab driver, find the next job.
