U.S. Xpress Enterprises on Wednesday, July 2, announced the appointment of John White to president of the company’s truckload unit. Since joining the company in June 2005, White has had the primary responsibility of overseeing truckload operations.
“John is an integral part of the improvements we have achieved within our truckload operation,” says Max Fuller, chief executive officer and co-chairman of U.S. Xpress Enterprises, based in Chattanooga, Tenn. “Over the past several years, we have been transitioning U.S. Xpress from the traditional long-haul market to feature more specialized services, including dedicated contract carriage, time-definite on-demand service, regional operations and expedited rail. John joined us at an important point in this process, and his leadership has made a true difference, especially in coordinating our expanded truckload offerings to a greater level of overall performance.”
In addition to continuing his current responsibilities with the company’s truckload operations, White will be working with the affiliated companies within U.S. Xpress Enterprises in an effort to develop profitable synergies between the affiliates.
“John has demonstrated his talent for efficiently managing the company’s variety of services and identifying cross-functional opportunities for growth,” says Patrick Quinn, president and co-chairman of U.S. Xpress Enterprises. “We believe that John will help us in further developing strategies that will promote additional growth in our services.”
