May 03--USA Truck in Van Buren received the Crawford County Award from the United Way of Fort Smith Area in recognition of the business making the largest impact in Crawford County during the organization's 2014-15 campaign.
USA Truck also has been honored as an Alcoa Tier 1 Core Carrier of the Year for the third consecutive year. The award recognizes commendable dry van service in North America.
USA Truck and the United Way's other partners were honored during the 2014 United Way Campaign Wrap-Up Celebration on April 22 at the Fort Smith Convention Center.
"It's an honor to receive an award within our community from an organization that invests 100 percent of the proceeds back into our community," said Burton Weis, vice president of human resources for USA Truck. "Our team members take great pride in making our community a better place and believe strongly in the United Way's core values."
Weis is also the immediate past chairman of the board of directors for the United Way of Fort Smith Area.
Alcoa, a global leader in lightweight metals engineering and manufacturing, has recognized its top core carriers in a variety of categories for nine years. Carriers are measured against seven key metrics including overall volume, shipment acceptance percentage, scope and sustainability and data accuracy. Carriers also must be under contract with Alcoa and meet volume minimums for at least 10 months of the year to be eligible for the award.
"This award is a testament to the fact that USA Truck continues to get even better every year," said Jaimey Malone, USA Truck's vice president, sales. "Alcoa's recognition of our excellence in service and capacity solutions for the third year in a row is a reflection on the consistency of execution from our team members across our multiple service offerings."
