Uber Freight announced a new feature, called “Take Me Home,” designed to highlight loads that can help drivers return home.

The Uber Freight app, initially launched in May, now will be able to give load recommendations that guide a driver back in the direction of a home, allowing them to return home faster while getting paid for the journey.  

Uber says it created the feature after speaking with a driver who said that a feature that helped him find return loads would make his life easier. Uber Freight requires new company recruits to spend time on a ride-along with truck drivers to learn first hand how to improve the app, and this latest feature came out of one of those sessions.

The feature is part of the Uber Freight app's “For You” section, which shows drivers personalized load recommendations and notifications based on location and past loads. The “Take Me Home” feature will be implemented for drivers using the Uber Freight app in the coming weeks.
