Van Buren-based USA Truck has earned repeat accolades as an Alcoa Tier 1 Core Carrier of the Year for commendable dry van service in North America.

Alcoa, a global leader in lightweight metals engineering and manufacturing, annually recognizes its core carriers in a variety of categories. Carriers are measured against seven key metrics including overall volume, shipment acceptance percentage, scope and sustainability, and data accuracy.

Alcoa’s 13 Tier 1 carriers transported 50% of Alcoa’s North American motor carrier business in 2013.

“We have enjoyed a long-lasting partnership with Alcoa, and this award, for the second year in a row, demonstrates USA Truck’s commitment to delivering on our promise of consistency and service,” Jaimey Malone, vice president of Sales for USA Truck, said in a statement. “I am proud of every USA Truck driver team member who made this possible, and I am proud of our enterprise team for managing their business in a way that compelled Alcoa to recognize our performance again.”
