Safety is our every day focus.
Long before the FMCSA’s Compliance Safety Accountability (CSA), U.S. Xpress began investing millions of dollars to ensure our equipment was among the safest on the road. For decades, we’ve protected our drivers—and everyone on the road around them—by being early adopters of technology and critical training, including:
Traction & Stability Control
Collision Avoidance Systems
In-Cab Safety Training Videos
State-of-the Art Braking Technology
NEW! Eve: External Event Recorder
The Most Important Aspect Of Service
U.S. Xpress was founded on the cornerstone concept that safety and service always work hand in hand. They are engines of equal horsepower that stand behind the success of our drivers and our company. In today’s world, excellent service demands that our drivers and the people supporting our drivers never take their collective eyes away from following the proper safe driving practices and taking the appropriate cargo security measures.
Over the years, we have continually worked to make the trucks at U.S. Xpress the standard for driver comfort and safety. The technology aboard our trucks has been placed there because we want our drivers to focus on the job at hand – keeping themselves and our customers’ cargo safe. Without the proper respect for safety, it is impossible to achieve the levels of service excellence that our drivers have established for U.S. Xpress.
NEW Eve, Protecting Drivers. Protecting the Public.
Studies prove nearly 80% of all collisions involving tractor trailers are NOT the truck driver’s fault. Yet, in some of these cases, drivers take the blame and the CSA points. Plus, we’re always searching for new ways to identify and reward our safest drivers. That’s why we’re installing Eve, an external event recorder, on all our trucks. When Eve detects triggering events like sudden deceleration, swerving, speeding or impact, it automatically records 12 seconds of external video and internal audio. So Eve will not only protect against CSA points, it will also help to reward safe driving habits, correct unsafe driving behaviors and, most importantly, ensure the well-being of our drivers and the motoring public.
Drivers Appreciate Our Safety-First Approach.
A safety-first mentality permeates our company at every level. That not only means training our drivers to make safe choices, it means backing them 100% every time they do. Click to hear how much that means to our drivers.
