U.S. Xpress’ Million Miler Luncheon was held in November, and honors drivers on the
grounds of remarkable driving records and miles driven.
Many of these drivers have exceeded the million mile marker
and have accomplished two, and even three million safe miles
throughout their career.
“It takes roughly 250,000 miles to get to the moon. If you take
two round trips to the moon and back, you will achieve one million
miles,” said Chief Administrative Officer, Lisa Pate. “To achieve
this a driver must not only be cognizant of their own driving
actions, but they must always be ready to react to other drivers
actions around them. The job of a professional truck driver is not
an easy one, but these drivers demonstrate a true commitment to
excellence in driving skills.”
Drivers were greeted by executive staff and an excited
crowd as they toured U.S. Xpress’ corporate headquarters
in Chattanooga, TN.
Following the tour, U.S. Xpress held a roundtable discussion
on driver success stories and words of advice. With a goal of
becoming a carrier of choice to drivers, U.S. Xpress listened to
possible ways to improve both the company and the livelihood
of our drivers.
The event concluded with a meet-and-greet, allowing
drivers to connect one-on-one with office staff at U.S. Xpress
U.S. Xpress looks forward to more Million Miler events to
recognize drivers that exceed expectations and exemplify
the success of the company.
