USA Truck Inc is a transportation and logistics service provider. The Company transports commodities throughout the continental United States and into and out of portions of Canada. It also transports general commodities into and out of Mexico.

USA Truck Inc was incorporated in Delaware in September 1986 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of ABF Freight System, Inc. The Company is a transportation and logistics service provider. The Company transports commodities throughout the continental United States and into and out of portions of Canada. It also transports general commodities into and out of Mexico by allowing through-trailer service from the terminal in Laredo, Texas, which is operated by its wholly owned subsidiary. Generally, the Company transport full dry van trailer loads of freight from origin to destination without intermediate stops or handling. The Company's operating business segments are Trucking and Strategic Capacity Solutions. The Trucking is comprised of truckload and dedicated freight services. Truckload provides services as a medium- to long-haul common carrier. USA Truck has provided truckload services since its inception, and derives the portion of its revenue from these services. Dedicated freight provides truckload services to specific customers for shipments over particular routes at particular. The Strategic Capacity Solutions consists of freight brokerage and rail intermodal services. Both of these service offerings match customer shipments with available equipment of authorized third-party carriers and provide services that complement the Company's trucking operations. USA Truck provides these services to existing trucking customers, many of whom prefer to rely on a single carrier, or a small group of carriers, to provide all their transportation solutions. The Company competes with other truckload carriers, private fleets and, to a lesser extent, railroads and less-than-truckload carriers. The Company's operations are regulated and licensed by various government agencies, including the DOT.
