Our truck net revenues, which consist of truckload and less-than-truckload (“LTL”) services, decreased 0.5 percent in the second quarter of 2012. Our truckload volumes increased approximately ten percent in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011. Our truckload net revenue margin decreased in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011, due to our cost per mile rising faster than our price per mile. Excluding the estimated impacts of the change in fuel, our truckload pricing to our customers increased approximately one percent in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011. Our truckload transportation costs increased approximately three percent, excluding the estimated impacts of the change in fuel. Our LTL net revenues increased approximately 12 percent. The increase was driven by an increase in total shipments of approximately 17 percent, partially offset by decreased net revenue margin.
