Driver managers lead teams of professional drivers and are the company’s primary contact for each member of its driver team.
Load planners assign loads to available tractors in a way designed to maximize profits and minimize costs. Customer service representatives work to meet shippers’ needs, request freight, and ensure on-time delivery by monitoring cargo movement.
These teams monitor the location of the equipment and direct its movement in a safe, efficient and practicable manner. The company strives to operate a safe and productive fleet while providing superior customer service.
The USAT logistics segment has a network of regional sales offices located throughout the United States.
The company believes that regionalization enables a greater vision of the market and strengthens relationships with customers and operators alike, while taking advantage of the skills and vision of the local market of the leaders who manage these centers.
The company has a diversified cargo and customer base, and focuses marketing efforts on customers who have consistent shipping needs within the eastern half of the United States, which is the predominant operating area for its trucking operations.
USAT Logistics offers services across the country, and cross-marketing of service offerings allows you to strategically position available equipment, while providing a full range of supply chain transportation solutions to your customers.
