Our History

Over 35 Years Of Service

USA Truck celebrated its 35th year in operation May 4, 2018. The company got its start in 1983 as Crawford Produce, Inc. (CPI) with fewer than 10 tractors in operation. CPI was incorporated under the name USA Truck in September 1986 and purchased by management in January 1989. The initial public offering of our common stock was completed in March 1992.

Today, with more than 2,000 driving team members, we are regarded as one of the nation’s largest over-the-road Truckload carriers. Our distinctive white tractors and trailers bearing the bar and star logo is an ode to our nation’s military from one of our founders, a former military aviator. Under that banner, we provide capacity solutions to a wide customer base throughout North America.
