Xavier Theriot

FedEx Freight
Louisiana - 1st place 4-Axle Class
FedEx Ace

After becoming a FedEx Ace in 2015 with his fifth career Twins title, Xavier moved to the 4-Axle class and captured another state championship at the 2016 Louisiana TDC. This marked the third straight year in which Xavier, a 26-year professional driver with more than 2 million accident-free miles to his credit, has captured a championship. Xavier thinks about safety in everything he does, saying “’Safety First’ isn’t just a motto, it’s a lifestyle.” Away from work, Xavier enjoys riding his slingshot motorcycle with his wife, Charlene. The Theriots have three children – Courtney, Amber and Xavier III – and six grandchildren. Xavier and his family make their home in Shreveport, Louisiana.
