August’s Drivers and Trainer of the Month Are Here!

by Miranda Brooks 1. October 2021 12:33

We think all U.S. Xpress drivers are some of the best professional truck drivers out there. Every day they're helping support the supply chain and keeping everyone in the country going.

But we want to recognize a specific few who have been beyond relentless. These drivers were nominated by their managers and chosen as winners by company leadership based on their outstanding safety records, hours of service compliance, and overall good reputation. Each of them will be recognized with a plaque, a $150 gift certificate to the company store, and an entry to become the 2021 Driver/Trainer of the Year.


Now let's get to it! August’s winners are:


Samuel F. – Dedicated Solo Driver of the Month

"Samuel came over to the YRC account and hit the ground running. He is extremely self-motivated and is always looking for new ways to maximize his miles and help fill any gaps that need to be covered. He has become an indispensable member of the team and continues to set new levels of performance for both the customer and U.S. Xpress as a whole." – Tim Smith, Account Supervisor


Donald C. & Richard D. – Dedicated Team Drivers of the Month

“Donald and Richard have been an extremely solid team running for me.

On top of that, they are highly motivated to continue to raise the bar on what a team is capable of as professional drivers.” – Tim Smith, Account Supervisor
