U.S. Xpress Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE:USX) (the “Company”), the nation’s fifth largest asset-based truckload carrier by revenue, today announced an organizational update within the Company’s primary service offerings with the appointment of Matt Herndon to President of Dedicated Services.
“Thanks in large part to Matt’s efforts, we’re seeing positive results from our strategic initiatives throughout the company,” said Eric Fuller, President and CEO of U.S. Xpress. “I believe his leadership and drive are exactly what we need to take our Dedicated Services division to the next level.”
Previously serving in the role of the Chief Operating Officer for the Company’s subsidiary, U.S. Xpress, Inc., Herndon has played a vital role in improving safety fleet-wide, implementing new processes for driver recruiting, eliminating waste and friction from operational processes and setting the foundation for growth.
“We’re fortunate to have found the best leader for our Dedicated Services division within our existing talent pool,” said Fuller. “I believe Dedicated service offerings have an enormous upside potential for our customers and the Company, and I’m confident that Matt will lead us to building an even stronger offering than what we have today. I’m grateful to Matt for the incredible work he’s done as the COO of U.S. Xpress, Inc. and am excited about where he’ll take the Dedicated group.”
Cameron Ramsdell, currently President of the company’s digital fleet, Variant, will continue to be responsible for Variant while assuming responsibility for the remaining OTR fleet as well.
