When it comes to transportation freight marketplaces, we all think of uShip. In this article we want to see how to create a website like uShip using wordpress. And for that we will need a theme that has a logic flow, of a reverse auction, or a uship auction type of logic. Where the customers will post transportation jobs and the carriers will bid like in an auction with their best offer for that particular transportation job. All these jobs have a starting and a destination point. Of course this guide can be used to create a website similar to shiply too, like a shiply clone site.
What is uShip ?
Well, uship is a website where a customer can post a quote request to transport an object (like an appliance) or a pet from a starting location to a destination location. He will receive numerous quotes from various carriers that are on the platform. He will choose the best price he thinks is ok for him and transportation job begins. Payment is held into escrow and only released when deliver is complete. At the end the customer can rate the carrier with a 5 star rating. Basically uship is a freight marketplace website.
What wordpress theme can I use for the uship clone ?
