VAN BUREN, Ark., May 18, 2017 — USA Truck Inc. (Nasdaq: USAK), a leading capacity solutions provider headquartered in Van Buren, Arkansas, has been awarded Top Pay Carrier Certification by the National Transportation Institute, indicating the carrier ranks in the top 10 percent in driver income potential.
“We have made a concerted effort to ensure our driver team members are among the best treated and best compensated drivers on the road today, and this certification is validation of our success,” said James D. Reed, president and CEO. “We treat drivers right by providing an overall experience that enhances their life and wellbeing.”
To earn this elite award from the National Transportation Institute, a carrier must qualify in three critical categories that together make professional driving a rewarding and secure career choice. The categories are top tier pay, health and retirement benefits and carrier stability. The results of the evaluation process are weighted into a single index number and ranked against other carriers, creating a select group of top paying carriers. Top Pay Carrier designation strengthens an already elite organization, says the National Transportation Institute.
