Mit Stubbs concluded, "Driver recruitment and quality service continue to be our highest priorities as we prepare for the future. The third quarter proved the economy has not totally rebounded, especially in the temperature controlled trucking sector, but we believe we are making progress. Although third quarter financial improvements were inconsistent with the trends we experienced earlier in the year, we are encouraged by the improvements we've made in the last month of the quarter. By maintaining improved asset utilization and continued growth in our LTL services, we expect to be rewarded with improved operating results in the coming quarters."
