"The new website will enable our customers to find industry-specific information that is geared directly towards them and the solutions they are seeking," states Patrick Quinn, Co-Chairman and President. "In addition to customer service, we are driven by innovation and are always looking for better, more efficient ways to operate and answer our customers' challenges. This website is just one way that we are utilizing technology to go above and beyond."

Other features include RSS feeds, which individuals can subscribe to for updates on new white papers, news, events, videos, and other new developments from U.S. Xpress. These tools have been added to the site to help customers make a solid decision about choosing U.S. Xpress. Other features include an easy-to-use track and trace center, request a quote function, and order entry forms.  

The site also includes links to important information for drivers, independent contractors, agents, carriers, and staff. Additionally, job seekers can subscribe to U.S. Xpress job alerts, which will inform them of new job openings that match their criteria. "The market for hiring quality, professional drivers is becoming more competitive than ever before," explains Fuller. "This site will enable the company to enhance our driver recruiting efforts by showing the value of working with U.S. Xpress."

The new website is segmented by solutions (Solo Truckload, Team, Dedicated, Demand Critical, Intermodal, Logistics, Brokerage, Specialized LTL, and International) and industry (automotive; consumer products; floor coverings; food, beverage and grocery; manufacturing; retail; and 3PL) so that the content is extremely relevant to the individual.
