LONDON (PRWEB UK) 4 March 2013
uShip.com (http://www.uship.co.uk), the world’s largest and most trusted transportation and shipping marketplace, is serving as the backdrop of “Shipping Wars,” HISTORY’s original reality series that airs tonight, Monday 4 March at 10pm. Viewers can catch the programme on SKY: HISTORY 529 & 530 (+1) or Virgin: HISTORY 234
“Shipping Wars” follows six independent transporters who regularly use uShip as a source of new and repeat business. The carriers use uShip’s bidding platform to engage in fierce competition to deliver uShip-sourced oversized and bulky loads. But no delivery is too big for these professionals, whether it’s hauled on a truck/trailer combination, a White Man Van or a classic lorry.
“Shipping Wars” promo videos and preview clips, including a uShip Webisode, can be viewed on the HISTORY’s UK site (http://www.history.co.uk/shows/shipping-wars/clips.html) or on uShip’s Shipping Wars show page at: (http://www.uship.com/shippingwars/)
“Haulage and delivery is a tough, competitive business,” said Lupo Westerhuis, General Manager, uShip Europe. “’Shipping Wars’ gives viewers a glimpse into the life of the independent American trucker, the unpredictable job they face, and how they turn the unshippable into the ‘uShip-able,’ whether they’re a rookie hauler or seasoned veteran. We’re thrilled that the interesting characters, competitive bidding and compelling loads found on uShip.com will be a part of this HISTORY series.”

Nearly 350,000 registered transporters worldwide have placed over 11 million bids and conducted nearly £250 million in business on the site while earning 98% positive feedback from customers, making it the most trusted transportation and shipping marketplace available.
