Our service offerings include transportation of full truckload containerizable freight, which we directly transport utilizing our company-controlled revenue equipment and company drivers or independent contractors. We also have arrangements with most of the major North American rail carriers to transport truckload freight in containers and trailers.
Our ability to offer multiple services, utilizing our four business segments and a full complement of logistics services through third parties, represents a competitive advantage. We believe this unique operating strategy can add value to customers and increase our profits and returns to stockholders.
