Tom Schmitt, President and CEO, commenting on third quarter results said, “Our strong third quarter growth fueled our year-to-date record results. Consolidated revenues grew 11.1% driven by solid revenue management across the portfolio.  Consolidated operating income grew 9.9% amid a tight truckload market that drove higher purchased transportation costs for all of our business units.  Intermodal generated record quarterly results, as the team capitalized on the benefits of increased volumes and recent acquisitions.”
Commenting on Intermodal’s continued growth, Mr. Schmitt said, “We are pleased to announce the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all of the assets of Southwest Freight Distributors (“Southwest”) for $16.25 million.  Southwest is a Dallas, Texas based premium drayage provider.  We expect the transaction will close within a month, and we anticipate Southwest will contribute $20.0 million of revenue and $3.0 million of EBITDA on an annualized basis.”
In closing, Mr. Schmitt said, “I would like to thank Bruce Campbell for the fantastic transition and for developing such an outstanding group of teammates. Together we will make profitable growth a remarkable reality.”
