Meet a Few of the People Who Make U.S. Xpress Special

There are more than 9,000 people who contribute in making U.S. Xpress one of the best truckload carriers in the country. Earlier this year, the Meet the Team videos were launched to introduce some of the faces at U.S. Xpress who makes it a great place to work.

Marion McLeod Jr.

Let’s begin with U.S. Xpress’ 2018 Dedicated Slip Seat Driver of the Year Marion McLeod Jr.

A retired Air Force veteran, Marion always knew growing up he wanted to join the military. He spent his younger days dedicated to serving the country before enjoying an early retirement. But retirement didn’t last too long and after two months, Marion had the desire to see the country. He decided it was time to check off another item on his bucket list and he became a professional truck driver.

Check out some of Marion’s favorite moments with U.S. Xpress and find out who he wants as his team driver.


Eric Fuller

As the oldest son of our Co-Founder Max Fuller, President and CEO Eric Fuller grew up at U.S. Xpress. Eric has had the unique opportunity to gain a detailed understanding of U.S. Xpress from the inside out, and has worked in a wide variety of roles in his nearly 20 years at our company. He has seen it go through a number of changes and is most excited about our future.

Watch Eric’s video to learn what his CB handle was back in high school.
