USA Truck Inc. of Van Buren on Aug. 30 announced the introduction of a lease purchase program available to driver employees interested in owning their own equipment and becoming owner-operators for the company.

The new program will offer current driver employees that meet certain qualifications the opportunity to purchase their own tractors through a third-party financing partner. Driver employees may purchase tractors directly from USA Truck or from outside sources.

“The company benefits by retaining elite drivers that might otherwise leave the company to become owner-operators elsewhere and it affords us another avenue to grow our revenue with minimal capital deployed,” said Mike Weindel, vice president of human resources, recruiting and training.
