CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — U.S. Xpress, the nation’s largest privately-owned truckload carrier, has introduced a new lease-purchase program designed to make owning their own business more attainable for professional truck drivers.
Professional drivers now have the opportunity to lease a low-mileage 2015 Freightliner Cascadia with no credit check, no money down and no balloon payments through the company’s new walkaway lease-purchase program, according to CEO Eric Fuller.
Weekly payments are as low as $493.00 depending on the truck’s specific mileage, and drivers can earn between $1 and $2 per dispatched mile, plus a fuel surcharge. Plus, there are no added out-of-pocket penalties for early termination of the program.
The new program also provides the following support and benefits:
“Between the low-risk features of the program, the late model Freightliner Cascadia, the perks that come from U.S. Xpress’ buying power, and the highly competitive pay, this very attractive program will be a great way for any professional driver to start his or her own business. This new lease-purchase program is part of our ongoing commitment to support truck drivers by providing them with an exciting opportunity to start their own business as an independent truck driver,” Fuller said.
The 2015 Freightliner Cascadia being offered through the program comes with an automatic transmission, dual air-ride seats and 72-inch double bunk condo sleeper.
Truck drivers who are at least 21 years old, have a Class A CDL, an acceptable safety performance history and a minimum of 12 months, verifiable truck driving experience are eligible to participate in the program.
