Paul Will, President and Chief Executive Officer, made the following comments: “We are pleased with our overall improvement in our operating statistics. The increase in average seated tractor count of 146, or 5.6%, to 2,770 in the June 2013 quarter compared with 2,624 in the March 2013 quarter was a significant operating metric improvement that resulted in increased revenue for the quarter. This increase was a result of expanding our recruiting efforts at terminal locations, having established a driving school and training program at our Indianapolis headquarters as well as the previously announced Hyndman acquisition which was completed in May 2013. Our average revenue per tractor per week increased $43, or 1.5%, to $2,941 in the June 2013 quarter, from $2,898 in the March 2013 quarter. In addition, our average revenue per loaded mile increased to $1.59 per mile in the June 2013 quarter from $1.55 in the June 2012 quarter.
