Happy birthday, National Guard!

by Miranda Brooks 13. December 2021 12:54

On this date in 1636, the first militia regiments in North America organized in Massachusetts. These units became what we now know as the National Guard. The descendants of these first militia groups, the 181st Infantry, the 182nd Infantry, the 101st Field Artillery, and the 101st Engineer Battalion of the Massachusetts Army National Guard – share the distinction of being the oldest units in the U.S. military. Happy 385th birthday to the National Guard, and thank you to all who served.

When we succeed, so do you: the Employee Stock Purchase Plan

by Miranda Brooks 12. December 2021 09:51

As you may know, U.S. Xpress is a publicly traded company. Through purchasing company stock, anyone can earn money from U.S. Xpress' success. If you're a company driver of U.S. Xpress or Variant, we have an Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP), an optional benefit that allows you to purchase company stock at a 15% discount. You can enroll in the ESPP from Dec. 1-15 of this year.

This discount is more than many of our competitors, and the highest allowable by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The only requirement is that you've been with U.S. Xpress or Variant as a company driver for 12 consecutive months. Keep a close eye on your email inbox and home mailbox for full details about the program.  

We're excited to offer this benefit and hope you consider participating in the program. If you have any questions, reach out to the HR Service Center at hrservices@usxpress.com or call them at 1-844-USXPRESS (Option #7).

 

As always, thanks for helping us make goods move better every day.

Scan in Your Paperwork from the Safety of Your Cab

by Miranda Brooks 10. December 2021 18:43

Have you tried the scanning feature in your Xpress Mobile App? If not, this is a great time to start using it. Why?  

It’s Convenient.

You can scan and view your paperwork from anywhere.

It’s Instant.

The app allows you to skip the lines for scanners so you can get back on the road sooner. 

It’s Easy.

If you already have the Xpress Mobile App, everything you need is already on your phone. 

It helps keep you safe. 

Since most drivers on the road have to scan in paperwork, scanners are often some of the more frequently touched items in our facilities and at truck stops. In the era of COVID-19, that’s the kind of thing you should be avoiding. Not to mention standing close to others as you wait in line for the scanner. When you use your app, you don’t even have to leave your cab. Just remember to disinfect your phone on a regular basis. 

Don’t have the Xpress Mobile App? Go to www.USXpressway.com click on "Xpress Mobile App" to download it today.

Feel free to reach out to your manager if you have any questions.

 

We appreciate all you do!​​

ATTN Dedicated Drivers: What is the new Road Ready Promise?

by Miranda Brooks 6. December 2021 13:50

Introducing our new Road Ready Promise. It’s our commitment to providing clean trucks that are ready to hit the road.  

How does it work? There are three ways:

  1. Our Staff: They will perform a pre-seat, 6-point checklist cleaning for new trucks at orientation. 
  2. Our Road Ready Crew: For slip seat trucks, our new crew will clean and inspect trucks each week.
  3. You: If you’re a slip seat driver, we’re asking you to do your part by making sure your slip seat truck is clean at the end of your shift.

 

The third item is key—if we all do a small part of the work, no one starts their shift with a dirty truck.
