The Company Lab - or CO.LAB - here in Chattanooga defines “sustainable mobility” as “the equitable movement of goods, people, energy and data.”

This month, the nonprofit hosted the CO.MOBILITY Summit around downtown Chattanooga - including here on our campus at UTC - launching a new business accelerator to support local startups and entrepreneurs in “sustainable mobility.”

Since the summit, Eric Fuller - the head of Chattanooga’s largest trucking company, U.S. Xpress - has announced he will soon join CO.LAB as its Executive in Residence, after the sale of U.S. Xpress to Knight-Swift Holdings is complete.

This week, Fuller and CO.LAB's CEO Tasia Malakasis spoke to reporters on Zoom.
