Paul Will, President and Chief Executive Officer, made the following comments: “Operations, maintenance and fuel expenses increased primarily due to older equipment associated with our most recent acquisitions, which will be somewhat alleviated in future periods when those assets are refreshed in a similar fashion to the remaining Celadon fleet.

“The average age of the Company’s tractor fleet was 1.7 years as of December 2013 and the average age of the trailer fleet was 2.4 years as of December 2013. Gains on sales of assets were $0.8 million in the December 2013 quarter compared with $4.0 million in the December 2012 quarter.
