Transportation company looking to put experienced drivers on the road in 2-3 days to address current market needs

US Xpress says it actively is recruiting professional drivers to fill positions in its over-the-road and dedicated divisions.

The trucking company is a subsidiary of US Xpress Enterprises, one of the largest asset-based truckload carriers in the nation.

“We are looking for experienced drivers, including those who may have been economically impacted or displaced as jobs are furloughed during this crisis,” said Eric Fuller, CEO of US Xpress. “We would love to have drivers join the US Xpress family as we all work to keep critical medical and food supplies rolling across this great country.”

US Xpress currently has open positions and is seeking applicants from across the country, the company said. With a commitment to get 80% of experienced drivers seated in trucks within two to three days, US Xpress is working swiftly to address current market needs and service customers who remain open, providing citizens with essential goods and services.

To further protect its employees, the company said it is transitioning to virtual orientation for new drivers looking to join the team, with only select tests being done in-person. US Xpress also is screening drivers at in-person orientation classes and terminals, with medical professionals on site to take temperatures prior to allowing entry.

For those onsite, social distancing is being applied with group sizes limited to 10.
