Bradley S. Jacobs

Thank you, operator and good morning everybody. Welcome to our second quarter conference call. With me today are John Hardig, our Chief Financial Officer, and Scott Malat, our Chief Strategy Officer. We have lots of news to share with you this morning.

First I’m happy to report that we’re either on track or ahead of schedule with each of the three core components of our plan; acquisitions, cold-starts, and optimization of operations.

Starting with acquisitions, as you saw last night we purchased Kelron Logistics on Friday. Kelron is a $100 million revenue truck broker based in Canada with offices in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Cleveland here in the States. We’ve met a large number of the Kelron employees, and they’re going to be a great addition to our team. I’m sure we have many of the Kelron people listening to the call, and I want to take this opportunity to welcome them to XPO.
