Earn up to $2,500 When You Refer a Diesel Mechanic

by Miranda Brooks 3. January 2022 17:32

As drivers, you know our Diesel Mechanics are vital in allowing you to earn money and deliver customers' freight safely and on time. And we need more of them to help keep you rolling.

But where do we find the best Diesel Mechanics? We're hoping you can help us. So, we're upping the ante on our technician referral bonus. Now, if you refer someone you can earn:

  • $1,500 for your 1st recruit
  • $2,000 for your 2nd recruit
  • $2,500 for your 3rd recruit (and each one after)

There's even something in it for the new recruit – a $2,000 sign-on bonus!

Making a referral for a different location? You can still earn some extra cash – $1,200 for your first recruit, $1,500 for your second, and $1,800 for your third (and fourth, and fifth, and…).

Know someone who would be a good fit? Refer them today.

Is your address up to date?

by Miranda Brooks 31. December 2021 08:07

If you've gone through a move recently or want to receive mail in a new location, make sure to update your mailing address. If we don't have your correct contact information, important documents like W-2's, 401k updates, or benefits plan information may be sent to the wrong place.
Updating your contact information is simple:

  1. Visit USXpress.com and select "Employee Self Service" in the bottom right-hand corner of the page.
  2. Enter your employee ID and password to log in. If it's your first time logging in, your password will be the last four digits of your social security number, your two-digit birthday month, and the last two digits of your birth year. So, for example, if you were born in January 1960, and the last four digits of your SSN are 1234, your first-time password would be 12340160.
  3. Once logged in, you can review all of your contact information, and if anything is incorrect, you may easily change it through the Employee Self Service page or by contacting the HR Service Center by phone (800-670-1915; x257510) or email (hrservices@usxpress.com).
  4. If you've moved to a new state, you will additionally need to update your tax paperwork to ensure you are paying taxes to the correct state. To do so, contact the HR Service Center to have the appropriate tax documents sent to you via mail or email to fill out, sign, and return to us.


Thanks for your help! ​



Last Call: Sign up to Get Your Electronic W-2

by Miranda Brooks 30. December 2021 15:56

Did you know you can opt to receive your W-2 electronically? It's easy. Just sign up by Dec. 31.

What's the benefit of an electronic W-2?

It's delivered a few weeks earlier than the paper-mailed version and can be accessed from anywhere.

You can download it directly to most at-home tax software, saving you time and hassle when you file your taxes.

It's more secure than a paper W-2 because they're delivered to an online account that you set up instead of to a home mailbox where you run the risk of identity theft. 


Already Signed Up?
If you already signed up for your electronic W-2 last year, you're good to go. Just log in as early as Jan. 17, 2022, using the username and password you set up last year. Don't remember your login information? Use ADP's "Forgot Your ID/Password?" feature to recover it. Just remember to check that you've chosen the "Go Paperless" option on your MyADP dashboard (click edit and turn the Receive Paperless Statements options to the "On" position). 

New to ADP?

  • Now's your chance to go paperless! It's easy:
  • Go to https://my.adp.com.
  • Click "New user? Create Account"
  • Click "I Have A Registration Code"
  • Enter USX-W2
  • Enter your Name and select "W2 Services" as the Service.
  • The following information is required for validation purposes:
    • The Tax Year (2021)
    • Your Employee ID #  
    • Our Company Code (NKY)
    • Your Zip Code that is currently on file with U.S. Xpress
    • Your Social Security Number
  • Follow the steps for creating your registration.
  • Once you're logged in, you'll see a "Go Paperless" option. Click the "Edit" button and you'll be able to turn the "Receive Paperless Statements" option to the "On" pos

Remember, once you make the switch, you won't be mailed a hard copy of your W-2.

  • The deadline for registering to receive an electronic W-2 for 2021 is Friday, Dec. 31, 2021.
  • Once you register, your W-2 will be available online at https://my.adp.com as early as Jan. 17, 2022.

Not ready to make the switch this year?
That's ok! We advise that you confirm your correct home mailing address with HR before Jan. 1, 2022 to avoid your W-2 being lost or marked undeliverable. 

If you have any questions about your W-2, reach out to your manager or call the U.S. Xpress Tax Hotline at 1-800-233-3864, ext. 7928.

From Behind The Wheel - Safe Driving in Action

by Miranda Brooks 24. December 2021 18:24

Studies prove nearly 80% of all collisions involving tractor-trailers are NOT the truck driver’s fault. Yet, in some of these cases, drivers take the blame and the CSA points. That’s why we installed Eve, an external event recorder, on all our trucks. When Eve detects triggering events like sudden deceleration, swerving, speeding or impact, it automatically records 12 seconds of external video and internal audio, protecting against deducted CSA points, allowing us to reward safe driving habits, helping us correct unsafe driving behaviors, and, most importantly, ensuring the well-being of our drivers and the motoring public.


In these moments, captured by Eve, we see not only how tough a driver’s job can be, but how lucky we are to have drivers on our team who make safety a priority. Check it out here: https://vimeo.com/646104396
