Total Transportation revenues increased 9.2 percent to $4.7 billion in first six months of 2012 from $4.3 billion in the first six months of 2011.

Total purchased transportation services increased 10.4 percent in the six months ended June 30, 2012 to $3.9 billion from $3.5 billion in the six months ended June 30, 2011. These increases were driven by volume increases in all of our transportation modes, higher transportation rates, and higher fuel prices.

Purchased products sourced for resale increased 4.8 percent in the six months ended June 30, 2012 to $750.2 million from $715.6 million in the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Other selling, general, and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenue increased to 14.9 percent in 2012 compared to 14.5 percent in 2011.
