Welcome to uShip! Save time and money when customer rated livestock shipping companies compete for your business.

Find Affordable Livestock Shipping Pros

  • Save Money - Livestock transportation companies engage in auction-style bidding.
  • Save Time - Don't waste time calling livestock transporters. Let them place bids on your livestock moving job.
  • No Unwanted Phone Calls - Your contact info is not shared until you accept a bid.
  • No Hidden Costs - No additional hourly, mileage or fuel charges.
  • It's Free to Try - No commitment and no risk.
  • uShip Tracking Platform
    Track your shipments in real-time. The uShip Tracking Platform allows Transportation Service Providers to display their location so you can easily track your shipments.

If you need to transport livestock, but don't have the time or resources available to do it yourself, uShip is an excellent resource. Thousands of independent transporters with specialized experience in livestock transport are waiting to bid on your shipment.

Whether you're bringing your cattle to market, have already sold livestock or need assistance transporting your animals to a show, uShip can help you find livestock shipping services quickly and cheaply.

There are a few things you need to keep in mind when choosing livestock transport on uShip. Be sure to detail the exact number, size and weight of your animals, so that transporters can give you an accurate quote and determine if their trailers meet your needs. You’ll also need to indicate any special accommodations your animals will need during the journey: a separate stall or regularly scheduled stops, for example.

You can review each transporter's profile to see past shipments and feedback from previous clients. Many livestock haulers will also post photos or videos of their trailer equipment. If a transporter does not provide any clear, visible information about their equipment, be sure to ask them within the Bid Details. You may also want to inquire about each transporter’s experience with trailering animals.

Upon arrival, do a brief visual inspection of the transporter’s trailer. Trailers will need to be clean, free of jagged edges and ideally have grooves in the floor for improved traction.
