Investing in our people, communities, and safety
Communities & People
U.S. Xpress places a priority on serving and engaging with the communities where we do business, particularly supporting organizations aligned with its four pillars of giving: safety and well-being, military veterans’ programs, education and innovation, and families and health.
Through our Xpress Cares program, employees can support fellow team members experiencing personal hardships through a company-matching contribution.
Since 2018, we’ve provided free college education to our drivers, shop technicians, and their dependents through the Full Ride program. For our office employees, we provide tuition reimbursement as well.
A Commitment to Our Environment
On the road as well as in our shops and offices, U.S. Xpress operates with a consciousness of environmental responsibility. Our most recent Corporate Responsibility Report details key metrics around efforts we’re making to reduce our carbon footprint. This includes long-standing partnerships with the Environmental Protection Agency, installing more efficient equipment fleet-wide, and upgrades to our service centers and offices nationwide.
Supporting an Inclusive Culture
We’re continuing our inclusion and diversity journey by strengthening our Inclusion & Diversity Council and making progress in defining goals, mapping strategies, and outlining specific deliverables to becoming a more inclusive organization.
We’ve also established five employee resource groups (ERGs) to better support specific segments of our workforce. These groups include women’s, veterans, multicultural, Pride/LGBTQ, and faith-based, each with an executive sponsor and individual leadership.
A Commitment to Safety
Safety also remains a top priority for U.S. Xpress, and we recently issued a Safe Trucking Report, which spotlights the continuous improvement we’re making to keep our roads safe. This includes insurance minimums well beyond industry average, hair testing for drugs, event recorders fleet-wide, speed limiters, and air disc brakes.
