Truck net revenue, including truckload and less-than-truckload services, gained 7.1% to $315.4 million. Truckload volumes increased 8%, but truckload margins decreased compared to last year's quarter due to higher cost per mile and higher fuel prices. LTL revenues grew 13%, driven by a 13% increase in shipments and pricing increases.
Intermodal net revenue edged up 1.2% to $9.7 million due to higher volume and price increases.
C.H. Robinson is ranked No. 6 on the Transport Topics Logistics 50 listing of North American logistics firms.
