  1. Very odd purchase. Uber has a reputation for cheap labor and Transplace has few assets. How many asset light players does the industry need?
    Capacity is tight this does nothing to alleviate our problem, in fact it makes it worse. Few carriers are in any hurry to sign up with Uber and their race to the bottom.

    Uber has lot their luster in ride sharing, they are trying their luck in an already overcrowded field of asset light providers.
    Good luck.
