USA Truck Inc. has been in the transportation industry for more than three decades. The company first opened its doors in 1983 under the name Crawford Produce Inc. (CPI). At the time, the company had fewer than 10 tractors on the road.

Today, the company has more than 1,600 driving team members. USA Truck has developed a reputation for being the largest over-the-road truckload carriers in the business.
