We are pleased to announce that Tom Miller has been selected as USA Truck’s Driver of the Month for September 2014.
Tom, a Company Driver, lives in Tyler, TX and has been with USA Truck since June 2000. He currently runs a Dedicated account for FedEx in the Upper Midwest, while also serving as a trainer, and is a Silver member of the President’s Million Mile Club with more than 2.5 million safe driving miles. Dedicated Operations Manager Michael Desjardins said Tom’s commitment to our customers and to the success of USA Truck is his most defining quality. “Tom’s willingness to go above and beyond on one of USA Truck’s most challenging lanes, while still training new drivers, has earned him the respect of all who know him. This recognition is well deserved and we are proud to have him on our team.”
Tom is the lone recipient for September’s contributions. For his recognition, Tom will receive meetings with USA Truck’s leadership — including President and CEO John Simone — a photo and a certificate, as well as internal and external publication recognition. As a monthly winner, Tom will also be automatically nominated for our Driver of the Year award, which will include grand prizes.
Please join us in congratulating Tom and in thanking him for all he does for USA Truck.
USA Truck Attracts Investors
USA Truck is on solid ground in the midst of a robust business turnaround as CEO John Simone has successfully refocused USA Truck back to its original basics – truckload freight services.
From 2009-2012, USA Truck focused on shorter length-of-haul freight deliveries where the average length of haul was 530 miles. Since Mr. Simone joined in early 2013, the average haul length has increased by 10.6% with more improvement expected.
By the end of the 2nd quarter of 2014, USA Truck posted a 97.2% operating ratio – the lowest quarterly operating ratio in over 5 years for USA Truck. What is most interesting is that USA Truck’s operating ratio has greatly improved while the industry average has remained relatively stagnant.
