Universal Truckload Services names new CEO

WARREN, MI – The incoming CEO of Universal Truckload Services, Inc. says customer relationships and organizational effectiveness will be the key to accelerated growth in the next few years.

Jeff Rogers, who took over from Scott Wolfe as CEO of Universal Truckload Services at the end of 2014, said the company plans to “leverage Universal’s broad transportation and logistics capabilities to enhance our position as a market leader.”

“I believe we have a team in place at Universal that is capable of accelerating growth over the next several years, taking full advantage of the streamlining of our subsidiary structure that we implemented during the holidays,” he said.

Although the sharp decline in oil prices has caused instability in energy markets, he said the company expects pricing opportunities and stable demand for transportation capacity elsewhere in 2015.

“Our automotive and truck manufacturing customers are enjoying favorable trends and momentum as we begin the next chapter in Universal’s history.”

Rogers has served as Universal’s executive vice president for the past seven months after departing as president of YRC Freight. He also served as president of USF Holland Inc., a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide Inc., as chief financial officer of YRC Regional Transportation Inc., and in various operational and finance roles at United Parcel Service.

Scott Wolfe, who was appointed to Universal’s board of directors on June 4, 2014, continues to serve as a director.

“We welcome Jeff as Universal’s new CEO and look forward with high expectations to his leadership,” said Matthew Moroun, chairman of Universal’s board of directors.

Universal Truckload Services, Inc. is an asset-light provider of customized transportation and logistics solutions throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada.
