Revenues were up 26.4 percent in the quarter to $331.9 million.

“Strong performance across all of our business segments generated second quarter revenue growth…and net revenue growth,” said Mark DiBlasi, president and CEO of Roadrunner. “Our continued initiatives to expand into new geographic regions, build density, improve pricing, and enhance productivity, as well as the addition of Expedited Freight Systems in August 2012, resulted in a net revenue margin improvement from 25.8 percent in the second quarter of 2012 to 28.8 percent in the second quarter of 2013.”

The company also expects its third quarter results to outpace its 2012 third quarter results.
