uShip’s global expansion continues. In the company’s largest single-day localization effort, it has launched six localized versions of its site in South America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Venezuela and Peru. This comes on the heels of launching localized versions in Mexico and India, putting uShip into 18 countries/regions on five continents in less than three years.
Like on other localized uShip sites, this means people and businesses in those countries can now transact on uShip.com in their local language, currency, and measurements, making it easier to post car, boat, furniture, freight listings and more.
“Just as we’ve seen in Europe, we anticipate uShip will be well received in these areas where there’s a highly-fragmented road haulage market and enormous volume – two conditions perfectly suited to our marketplace model,” said Shawn Bose, vice president and general manager, global business at uShip.
Simultaneously, as post on our blog last week, A&E’s Latin American subsidiary has started airing Season 1 of A&E’s “Shipping Wars,” the real-life series that features uShip.com. Guerra de Envios (‘Shipping War’ in Spanish-speaking Latin America) and Guerra de Entregas (in Brazil) is now airing in 18 Latin American countries to over 34 million viewers. In the U.S., Season 2 of Shipping Wars begins airing Aug 7 at 9 pm ET/PT on A&E.
