Eve Captured Mark K.’s Safe Driving on Tape

by Miranda Brooks 23. September 2020 09:46

You have control over almost everything inside your cab. But when it comes to outside of it, it’s a different story.

 

Recently, Eve, our external event recorder, captured U.S. Xpress Professional Driver Mark K.’s safe driving skills when another car hydroplaned on a rainy day. Remaining calm and focused, he was able to slow down quickly and keep himself and other driver out of harm’s way. Check it out

 

Thanks, Mark, for helping keep our roads safe. We’re glad Eve was able to catch this great learning moment.

It’s Vacation Time!

by Miranda Brooks 16. September 2020 10:23

We have an exciting new update to your benefits that we think you’re going to love.

Starting October 1, 2020, if you’re a U.S. Xpress Company Drivers who’s not already covered under a Dedicated vacation plan, you’ll receive vacation time after being with U.S. Xpress for one year! And the longer you’re with us, the more vacation you get. Here’s the run-down:

  • 1 Year Tenure: 1 Week of Vacation
  • 3 Years Tenure: 2 Weeks of Vacation
  • 7 Years Tenure: 3 Weeks of Vacation
  • 15 Years Tenure: 4 Weeks of Vacation

Vacation should be taken one week at time and will pay out at a rate based on the your prior 52-week average pay.

Keep in mind, this vacation package will replace the current Annual Retention Bonus because, this way, you’re getting paid more.

If you are a driver that is currently on a Dedicated vacation plan that is less than the above package, you may see changes to your vacation plan. If your current Dedicated plan exceeds the above, you will stay on your current package. All existing Dedicated vacation plans will now also be based on your company anniversary date.

Be on the lookout for a direct communication that will detail how these changes specifically affect you.

Thanks for all your hard work. You deserve a little vacation time.
