The decline in fuel surcharge revenue for each of the periods was due to the significant decline in retail fuel prices during the periods compared.

 

Daniel H. Cushman, President of the Company, commented, “We are very pleased to report record earnings for both the fourth quarter and for the year. We want to thank our committed employees and customers for our ongoing success. Our most profitable year on record, prior to this year, was 2006. What made 2015 especially satisfying was that we set a new record with significantly fewer assets. We did it by focusing on doing everything better.

 

“At the start of 2015, our goal was to continue to maintain our operating profit margins realized in 2014, but just as importantly, we wanted to grow. Throughout the year we explored multiple growth opportunities, but in the end, only realized growth organically. We continued to see strong demand in our Automotive, Mexico and Logistics Divisions which are among our most profitable divisions. Growth in our Logistics Division far exceeded our expectations and as a result, we were able to provide our customers with better than expected additional capacity. We were also able to stabilize our Expedited and Dedicated Divisions during the year. Overall, we achieved base revenue growth of 12.3% in a somewhat challenging year, particularly towards the end of the year. As previously mentioned, maintaining margins was our goal while growth was our focus, and we achieved base revenue growth of 12.3% year over year and increased operating profit margins by 55.1% year over year. We are very satisfied by those results.

 

“We enter 2016 with continued focus on our commitment to our driving professionals. We do that in a multitude of ways. We provide them with one of the newest and innovative fleets on the road as the average age of our truck fleet is 1.3 years old. During 2015, we also made significant investments in new trailers and expect to continue to do so throughout the coming year. As a result of our investments and efforts, we have seen our driver fleet grow by over 100 drivers during the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Our selection of job opportunities and home time separates us from others.
