When Max Fuller and Patrick Quinn founded US Xpress in 1986, they began with a modest fleet of just 48 trucks. More importantly, they brought a fresh, new perspective that emphasized custom solutions and personalized customer service, delivered by insightful and motivated experts. This new way of thinking quickly resonated with customers. In fact, just one year later Inc. magazine hailed US Xpress as one of the fastest-growing privately held truckload carriers in the country.
Our leadership was also eager to harness the power of technology for the good of our customers and our employees. US Xpress was one of the first truckload carriers to fully integrate satellite communications aboard the fleet.
Also, we were proud to be early adopters of such life-saving technologies as roll stability, disc brakes, and accident avoidance systems. In addition, US Xpress’ fresh perspective included leading the industry in “thinking green.” We were awarded for the second time the SmartWay Environmental Excellence Award for reducing pollution and greenhouse gasses.
By staying true to our core ideals, US Xpress has achieved exponential growth. In fact, we surpassed $1 billion in annual revenue faster than any truckload carrier in history. In the process, our fleet has grown from those original 48 trucks to 7,000 tractors and 15,500 trailers. And the innovative spirit that first launched US Xpress is now fueled by over 10,000 solutions-minded problem- solvers—including a new generation of Fullers and Quinns. So no matter what new challenges the future may bring, U can count on US.
Because of the volatile tendencies of the trucking industry, many truckload carriers only plan one or two years ahead. Under the leadership of President and CEO Eric Fuller, we are planning for a decade or more down the road. We’re confident in our investments, our strategy, and, most of all, the team we’ve built to evolve towards a true digital transportation solutions provider designed to make goods move better every day.
Eric has served as Chief Executive Officer since March 2017 and as President since March 2018.
In 2018, he led the company through its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange and, beginning in 2019, built two new operating models from the ground up: a first-of-its-kind digital fleet, Variant, on the asset side, and Xpress Technologies, our reimagined brokerage division, on the third-party capacity side.
Passionate about technology, he continues to build an innovative culture that streamlines the value chain for U.S. Xpress customers, improves the overall driver experience, and transforms U.S. Xpress into a true digital transportation solutions provider. These efforts include significant investments in the future of the trucking industry, such as autonomous trucking and fuel cell technology.
Eric also guides the company in corporate responsibility and places a focus on devoting time and resources to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
A staunch advocate for the trucking industry, Eric lobbies for a range of regulations that promote safety and environmental responsibility and serves on the board of directors for both the American Trucking
