GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Werner Enterprises Inc was incorporated in the State of Nebraska in September 1982 and completed its initial public offering in June 1986. It is a transportation and logistics company engaged mainly in hauling truckload shipments of general commodities in both interstate and intrastate commerce. It also provides logistics services through its Value Added Services division. At the end of 2013, the Company had a fleet of 7,050 trucks, of which 6,380 were company-operated and 670 were owned and operated by independent contractors. Its VAS division operated an additional 49 intermodal drayage trucks at the end of 2013. The Company has two reportable segments; Truckload Transportation Services and VAS. Its Truckload segment is comprised of the One-Way Truckload and Specialized Services units. One-Way Truckload includes the following operating fleets: the regional short-haul fleet transports a variety of consumer nondurable products and other commodities in truckload quantities within geographic regions across the United States using dry van trailers; the medium-to-long-haul van fleet provides comparable truckload van service over irregular routes; and the expedited fleet provides time-sensitive truckload services utilizing driver teams. Specialized Services provides truckload services dedicated to a specific customer, generally for a retail distribution center or manufacturing facility, including services for products requiring specialized trailers such as flatbed or temperature-controlled trailers. Its Truckload fleets operate throughout the 48 contiguous U.S. states pursuant to operating authority, both common and contract, granted by the U.S. Department of Transportation and pursuant to intrastate authority granted by various U.S. states.
