USA Truck was incorporated in Delaware in September 1986. The Company is a truckload carrier providing transportation of general commodities throughout the continental United States, into and out of Mexico and into and out of portions of Canada. It provides dedicated, brokerage and rail intermodal services. For shipments into Mexico, it transfers its trailers to tractors operated by Mexican carriers at a facility in Laredo, Texas, which is operated by its wholly-owned subsidiary. Through its asset based and non-asset based capabilities, it transport many types of freight for a diverse customer base in industries such as industrial machinery and equipment, rubber and plastics, retail stores, paper products, durable consumer goods, metals, electronics and chemicals. The Company has three main operating segments which include Trucking Operating segment; SCS Operating segment; Intermodal Operating segment. The Company's truckload freight services utilize equipment it owns or equipments owned by owner operators for the pick-up and delivery of freight. The Trucking segment of its operations provides these services through three service offerings. The Company's General Freight service offering transports freight over irregular routes as a short- to medium-haul common carrier. The Company's Dedicated Freight service offering provides similar transportation services, but does so pursuant to agreements whereby it makes its equipment available to a specific customer for shipments over particular routes at specified times. The Trailer-on-Flat-Car ("TOFC") portion of its rail Intermodal service offering was classified within its Trucking operating segment. Its SCS and Intermodal operating segments are intended to provide services which complement its Trucking services, mainly to existing customers of its Trucking operating segment. A majority of the customers using its SCS and Intermodal services are also customers of its Trucking operating segment. The Company competes with other truckload carriers, private fleets and, to a lesser extent, railroads and less-than-truckload carriers. Its operations are regulated and licensed by various government agencies, including the DOT. Its Canadian business activities are subject to similar requirements imposed by the laws and regulations of Canada, as well as its provincial laws and regulations.
