USA Truck Expands Operations at West Memphis Facility

03/11/2015

Expansion To Create Jobs, Focus On Driver Training and Development

USA Truck, a leading capacity solutions provider headquartered in Van Buren, AR, has expanded its West Memphis, AR terminal to meet the needs of its growing business in the nation’s most active ground transportation hub.

The company expanded its operational footprint in 2013, creating 12 full-time positions that support its driving fleet within the Memphis metro region and provide more home time for USA Truck driver team members because of the terminal’s centralized location.

This recent West Memphis expansion focuses on driver training and development, and is expected to create five full-time jobs in the immediate future while expanding USA Truck’s geographic hiring area for drivers.

“As a native of West Memphis, I am pleased to see the progress we have made in creating jobs for skilled professionals in an area where transportation thrives for the West Memphis and surrounding economies,” said Burton Weis, Vice President of Human Resources for USA Truck.

USA Truck has recorded nine consecutive quarters of financial improvement, and in the fourth quarter of 2014 posted its most profitable quarter in eight years.
