Freightlink, Inc. has filed a lawsuit in the District of Utah against Uber Freightlink for trademark infringement alleging the use of a similar name which is likely to cause consumer confusion.

The plaintiff reportedly claimed that Freightlink, shipping and transportation services company owns the FREIGHTLINK mark in Class 039 covering freight shipping and transportation services via truck, air, ship, and rail.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendant is using the term ‘Freight Link’ in its branding of shipping and transportation services without permission or authorization.

The plaintiff reportedly said that the defendant’s use of the mark, FREIGHTLINK or FREIGHT LINK in connection with shipping and transportation services is likely to cause consumer confusion and perceived affiliation.

Freightlink reportedly said that the defendant is trying to use the plaintiff’s goodwill associated with its FREIGHTLINK mark for-profit purpose.

The plaintiff is accusing the defendant of trademark infringement, unfair competition, and unjust enrichment.

Freightlink is seeking a declaratory judgment in its favor, an award for damages, an award for costs and fees, prejudgment interest, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, and other relief.

The case is ongoing.
