U.S. Xpress officials and employees gathered Jan. 21 at the company's Tennessee headquarters to hear what co-founder, Chairman and CEO Max Fuller and his management team would say on the trucking firm's 30th anniversary.
On the milestone day, Fuller touched on the past but focused on the future.
He said in a companywide address, which was live-streamed to all U.S. Xpress terminals and facilities, that the state of the company is exceptionally strong. And its future, exceptionally bright.
And himself, exceptionally proud and optimistic — and enjoying leading and developing a new group of executives.
It was exactly 30 years ago, Jan. 21, 1986, that U.S. Xpress first put a truck on the road, after Fuller and Pat Quinn — friends and business partners after working together at Clyde Fuller's Southwest Motor Freight — started the trucking company.
