Fees & Service Charges


Service Charge

When you book with your transporter, you pay the total bid amount plus a service charge. This is a nominal fee paid directly to uShip that covers things like website operations. It is not a set fee and is calculated depending on the commodity you are shipping. 

When a bid is accepted, the service charge is clearly disclosed along with the total amount due. You can also see the total amount you will pay, including the service charge, under any active quotes you receive and at checkout. Please see the example screen shot below. Note that this is an only an example. 

uShip Cargo Insurance

Cargo insurance may be available for purchase upon checkout. If it is, you will be required to Include or Decline coverage. The charge is based on the amount of coverage you would like for your shipment. Simply enter your desired coverage amount and we will return the cost. 


Terrapass allows both service providers and shipping customers to offset their carbon footprint by purchasing off-set eco credits. You can choose to 'Offset your carbon footprint' by making sure the check-box is selected during checkout.
