USA Truck Chooses SkyBitz's GLS Trailer Tracking Technology

VAN BUREN, Ark. and STERLING, Va., Jan. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- USA Truck, Inc. (Nasdaq: USAK) announced today that it has chosen SkyBitz® for its trailer tracking technology – the Gemini GLS400 mobile terminals plus cargo sensors. The Company expects the new technology to contribute to more efficient asset utilization across its fleet, improve customer satisfaction through better asset allocation and load visibility and enhance load security. The trailer tracking technology is expected to be installed over time on more than 6,000 trailers beginning during the first quarter of 2011. This technology is designed to provide managers the ability to view trailer assets in real-time and run customizable management and operational reports for each trailer in their fleet. The Company expects to be able to automatically download all of the positioning data into its own truckload management software and fully integrate with SkyBitz.

Cliff Beckham, USA Truck's President and CEO said, "With SkyBitz's trailer tracking technology, we expect better visibility of our fleet and the status of our trailers. We were looking for more real-time data to help us improve customer service and equipment utilization while reducing unnecessary headaches for our drivers. With more precise and real-time metrics on trailers, we should be able to operate with a more efficient trailer-to-tractor ratio than we would otherwise. Our decision to purchase this trailer tracking technology is another example of how we are implementing our VEVA long-term strategic plan to control costs and boost return on invested capital."

"As supply chain efficiency increasingly drives corporate decisions and fuel costs are rising, forward looking companies like USA Truck are making investments in technology solutions to stay ahead of the curve," said Homaira Akbari, President and CEO of SkyBitz. "We are pleased to partner with USA Truck in implementing asset management solutions."
