USA Truck, Inc. Receives Grainger's 2009 Carrier Of The Year Award

VAN BUREN, Ark., March 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- USA Truck, Inc. (Nasdaq: USAK) announced today that it was presented with W.W. Grainger's prestigious Partners in Performance Award, Carrier of the Year, for 2009 at Grainger's annual supplier conference held last week in Schaumburg, IL.  W.W. Grainger, North America's leading distributor of facilities maintenance supplies, presents the award annually to a select group of suppliers for outstanding performance throughout the year.  

Grainger's Partners in Performance Award recognizes suppliers who achieve excellence in several categories, including responsiveness, information integrity, on-time shipping, management commitment and order fulfillment.  Grainger suppliers receive ratings throughout the year for their performance in each of these categories.  Approximately one percent of Grainger's 3,000 suppliers receive this award each year; only one of which is a transportation provider.

"Grainger is proud to honor USA Truck for excellence in overall responsiveness and dependability," said John Foster, Director, Purchasing Operations, Grainger. "USA Truck has worked with Grainger for 10 years and is a key partner in helping Grainger provide our customers across the country what they need, when and where they need it."

"USA Truck is proud to serve Grainger, and we are honored by the recognition from one of our strategic partners.  We are committed to providing all of our customers with superior and innovative transportation solutions," said Cliff Beckham, USA Truck President and Chief Executive Officer.  "This award is a testament to the efforts of our employees and our corporate culture of customer service."
