Our Drivers Know Brake Safety

by Ashley Rhodes 17. September 2019 14:58

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) is conducting Brake Safety Week now through September 21. During this week, CVSA-certified inspectors will be roadside inspections, with a focus on:

• loose or missing brake parts
• air or hydraulic fluid leaks
• defective rotor conditions
• worn linings, pads, drums or rotors
• brake-system warning devices

Luckily, our pro drivers are smart about safety! You avoid violations by making sure to:

• Conduct a pre-trip inspection that includes looking for worn or missing brake components and leaks.
• Report any and all issues to shop technicians.
If you have any questions about Brake Safety Week, reach out to the Safety department or your FM/AS.

Brake Safety Week Starts Sept. 15, and We Know You’re Prepared!

by Ashley Rhodes 13. September 2019 16:10

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will be conducting Brake Safety Week from September 15-21. Inspectors will be conducting roadside inspections aimed at identifying and removing commercial vehicles with critical brake violations. Luckily, our pro drivers are smart about safety! You avoid violations by making sure to:


• Conduct a pre-trip inspection that includes looking for worn or missing brake components and leaks.


• Report any and all issues to our ASE-certified shop technicians.


During last year’s Brake Safety Day, 14% of vehicles inspected were placed out of service for brake violations. Brake violations also play a big part in crashes, being the main cause of nearly 50% of brake-critical crashes. But being smart about safety, conducting pre-trip inspections, and reporting everything to shop techs, you help keep everyone safer on the road.
If you have any questions about Brake Safety Week, reach out to the Safety department or your FM/AS.

Don’t Delay Your Pay!

by Ashley Rhodes 7. September 2019 16:08

Did you know that a crucial step in the payroll process is accurate barcode entry? Skipping this step could cause a delay in your pay, and nobody wants that!

As you know, in order for your trips to be accounted for correctly, you will be attaching a new fax cover sheet to your paperwork. Each cover sheet contains a unique barcode that will be assigned to the corresponding trip.

As you are finaling each trip, you will be using Macro 8, Macro 15, Macro 36, or Macro 38. Make sure that you are entering your unique barcode for that trip into the macro form.

Completing this important step will prevent errors in your paperwork and will get you paid without delay.

If you have any questions about payroll barcode entry, please contact your FM/AS, or the Payroll Department at 1.844.879.7737, option 5.

Want to make an easy $2,000? Refer a qualified technician. For a limited time, we’re paying $2,000 for every tech referred in Shippensburg! Don’t know anyone in those areas? That’s okay! When you refer a technician for any other location, you can earn:


1st successful recruit: $1,200
2nd successful recruit: $1,500

3rd successful recruit: $1,800

You’ll receive half of your bonus after your referral has been with us for 30 days, and the remainder after they have been with us 90 days. So just think, if you refer three technicians today, you could be holding $4,500 or more very soon!

Ready to make some quick cash? Make a referral by visiting www.USXtechreferral.com. Make sure the technician referral includes your name when applying online.
