Leading Transportation and Logistics Provider Up Two Spots from Last Year.
September 12, 2014 — USA Truck, a leading transportation and logistics provider headquartered in Van Buren, Ark., is listed by Transport Topics as a Top 100 For-Hire Carrier for 2014.
USA Truck moved up two spots from last year’s ranking to No. 50. At the end of 2013, USA Truck employed just under 2,800 team members (driver and non-driver combined) with more than 2,100 company-owned tractors and more than 6,000 trailers. The company has had seven consecutive quarters of financial improvement and posted its single most profitable quarter in four years in the 2nd Quarter of 2014.
“It’s always gratifying when industry peers recognize your efforts, as well as when we earn recognition from a premier publication like Transport Topics,” said John Simone, President and CEO of USA Truck. “We have made great strides in the past 18 months, but we have a lot more work to do. We look forward to building on our momentum as we work toward our goal of becoming an industry-leading capacity solutions provider.”
For the second year in a row, Atlanta-based UPS, Inc. earned the No. 1 spot on list.
The 2014 Transport Topics Top 100 is a project of Transport Topics Publishing Group and features data compiled from public and private for-hire trucking companies.
