USA Truck Is Awarded 'Top Pay Carrier' Designation

VAN BUREN, Ark., Dec. 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- USA Truck, Inc. (Nasdaq: USAK) has been recognized as a Top Pay Carrier by the independent National Transportation Institute ("NTI"), as part of its 2011 Survey of Driver Wages.  USA Truck was ranked in the top 20 percent of carriers nationwide for its excellence in the categories of driver pay, health and retirement benefits and financial stability.

"We are excited to award USA Truck this Top Pay Carrier recognition," said NTI President Gordon Klemp.  "In order to get this, they have passed a rigorous three-part qualification process.  This award was given to USA Truck only after we examined the long-term financial success they offer drivers as well as what they provide in terms of job security, retirement income and health and wellness coverage," he said.  "This is the only pay award that is quantifiable and actually based on objective information.  We hope this rating will give drivers a tool to use in their careers."

"We are honored to be recognized for our efforts to be a great career choice for truckers," said Scott Loveday, Director of Driver Recruiting at USA Truck.  "We are committed to being the kind of company that quality drivers are looking for.  Coming from an independent third party, this award goes a long way to prove we are looking out for drivers over the long term."
