Trucks with the U.S. Xpress logo do more than deliver the goods and products that keep the economy moving. 

They’re the most visible part of a company committed to creating opportunities for its employees, giving back to the community, protecting the environment, enhancing roadway safety and developing advanced technologies that bring greater efficiency to the supply chain. 

For the more than 1,000 team members in its Chattanooga headquarters and its close to 8,000 drivers and technicians nationwide, U.S. Xpress is where they find rewarding opportunities in a wide range of careers. 

“It’s an exciting time at U.S. Xpress. We’re always looking for top talent across the company, and particularly here at our Chattanooga headquarters,” says Chief People Officer Amanda Thompson. 

“As we evolve toward a true digital transportation solutions provider, we’re filling roles traditionally not associated with trucking – from IT to planning to data analysis.”

U.S. Xpress’ team members represent many cultures, backgrounds and experiences. The company has established a Diversity & Inclusion Council and strives to create a workplace where everyone can succeed. It’s also giving back to the community with a robust engagement program and goals of doubling community involvement by 2025. 

A significant number of U.S. Xpress’ drivers and office team members have served in the military, which is why the company supports Hiring Our Heroes, a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members and military spouses find meaningful employment. 

The company’s use of innovative technology extends across the entire organization. Drivers train in a simulator, just like airline pilots. U.S. Xpress partners with world-renowned research school, MIT, to explore the future of logistics and is investing in the development of autonomous, or self-driving trucks. Other technologies enhance safety, reduce fuel consumption and cut emissions. 

It’s all part of being a tech and innovation-focused company that is changing the logistics industry.
