Blue Beacon Partnership- Get a Free Truck Wash!

by Miranda Brooks 25. January 2022 20:46

Did you know U.S. Xpress company drivers can wash their trucks and trailers for free every 28 days/4 weeks at any U.S. Xpress shop or Blue Beacon location? It's true. 

For Blue Beacon washes, all you need to do is pull up to a location, provide your truck number, show your CDL and sign a wash ticket. The wash includes a cab wash as well as a trailer wash. We highly encourage you to wash the trailer while you're at it – don't worry, that's free too. Please note, you must show your CDL and sign in.

If you have any questions about your free truck wash, contact the XRA/Breakdown Department at 844-879-7737 option 4, then option 2. ​

Want to earn some extra cash?

by Miranda Brooks 23. January 2022 18:29

Let’s be honest, who would be a better recruiter for professional drivers than another professional experienced driver?

We know our professional drivers know their job better than anyone, which is why we’re happy to reward drivers for referring new drivers. We’ll pay $4,000 for experienced team referrals and $2,000 for solo driver referrals. How cool is that? Up to $4,000 for a simple conversation—that’s tough to beat.

If your referral is hired, you’ll receive your referral bonus when they deliver their first load. And then you can get out there and refer another team or solo driver. Rinse and repeat.

 

All you have to do is text “refer” to (423) 436-9588 and our virtual assistant will guide you through the rest!

Don't get stranded in freezing temperatures. Use Anti-Gel

by Miranda Brooks 23. January 2022 18:28

During winter weather, make sure to pour in one bottle of Anti-Gel per fuel tank each time that you fill-up. Anti-Gel is available at all U.S. Xpress shops. You can also purchase Anti-Gel with your fuel card at your fuel stops.

 

Anti-Gel prevents your fuel from gelling due to exposure to the arctic air. Your truck will not start or run if your fuel gels, resulting in your truck being towed, and lost time given to waiting on your fuel to thaw and return to a liquid state.

5 ways you can celebrate MLK Jr. Day

by Miranda Brooks 17. January 2022 09:19

The Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is a day to reflect on the legacy of Dr. King. It is also an opportunity to honor his commitment to nonviolence, equality, and social justice. Here are five things you can do to celebrate the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday

  • Read Dr. King’s Letter from Birmingham Jail.
  • Read or watch his “I Have a Dream” speech.
  • Honor the civil rights heroes who paved the way for us by learning more about their stories through reading or watching documentaries about them. When possible, plan a visit to a historic civil rights site.
  • Support organizations that fight for racial equity and equality by donating to the organization or signing up to volunteer.
  • Support Black-owned businesses. 

As you remember Dr. King’s legacy, remember his own adage, “The time is always right to do what is right.”

by Miranda Brooks 16. January 2022 17:16

As you may know, Professional Drivers Paul and Suzanne W. drive our Austin Hatcher Foundation truck to help drive awareness to pediatric cancer and shine a spotlight on the great work happening at AHF. The Wylie's send in regular updates of their view from the road and we love to hear from them! So, where have they been lately? From the deserts of Phoenix, AZ to the mountains in Vail, CO, the Wylie's sure have been busy. Thank you, Suzanne and Paul, for all that you're doing to drive awareness to such an important cause.

Checking in on our Dedicated team’s Road Ready Promise

by Miranda Brooks 15. January 2022 17:00

After a month, it seems like our Road Ready Promise is popular with our Dedicated drivers who are participating in the program. We knew that there would be a learning period as we started this initiative, but our first month resulted in a 5% defect rate. This means that 95% of the time, our trucks were clean and road ready when you were seated. We’ll continue to work to lower our defect rate as much as possible.

Additionally, we want to send a big congrats to Pro Driver Chansen S. for winning the Exceptionally Clean Truck Award. Chansen is a driver on the Walmart Dedicated account in New Caney, TX. Supervisors frequently check a selection of trucks to ensure cleanliness, and those up to Road Ready standards are being entered for a chance to be the monthly winner. Way to go, Chansen! 

 

Thanks to everyone participating in the Road Ready Promise. Your work is helping us create a great experience for our professional drivers.
