Reimagining and innovating the freight marketplace.

U.S. Xpress is reimagining and digitizing freight brokerage – propelling the company into the future. Presently known as Xpress Technologies, this innovative business unit is headed by a new leadership team and utilizes machine learning and purposeful technologies developed to scale a digital freight marketplace, enabling success and growth for carriers and shippers.

Recent supply-chain volatility has put shippers in a tough position to move goods on time and gain greater visibility into operations. At the same time, carriers are busier than ever and want access to consistent, equitably priced freight. Xpress Technologies delivers solutions built for today’s supply chain, to better support shippers through carrier optimization and carriers with easy access to great freight.

“Though our journey has just begun, we’re pleased by the insights and early momentum we’re building with our team, our shippers and our carrier partners.”

At the head of the leadership team is Joel Gard, who serves as President of Xpress Technologies. Gard joined U.S. Xpress from Coyote Logistics, where he led the company’s entry into Europe: expanding its digital brokerage offering to serve carriers and shippers in more than 30 countries. Charged with building and strengthening the new team, Gard and his team are streamlining the digital brokerage process through innovative technology to provide a high-fidelity experience for our partners. He’s now responsible for building and strengthening the Xpress Technologies team by establishing a solid leadership foundation with new and diverse talent from within and outside the transportation industry.

Born from the acquisition of a small technology company with a scalable platform and an experienced and talented team, Xpress Technologies offers a modern freight marketplace that democratizes the logistics industry for carriers and shippers. Backed by U.S. Xpress, the existing brokerage allows Xpress Technologies to combine traditional brokerage while pushing for the future of freight. Gard says, “Though our journey has just begun, we’re pleased by the insights and early momentum we’re building with our team, our shippers and our carrier partners.”
