A & S Services Group, LLC (A&S) has been named to Commercial Carrier Journal’s TOP 250 Largest For-Hire Carriers for 2013.
The for-hire carriers in the 2013 CCJ Top 250 that reported revenue posted a 5.7 percent increase in revenue in 2012 compared to 2011. While that’s a solid increase, it lags behind the 2011 and 2010 year-over-year revenue increases of 11.6 percent and 10.5 percent, respectively. Of course, those years represented a recovery from one of the worst years ever in trucking, so perhaps it would be too much to expect the double-digit growth to continue.
Also, the 5.7 percent revenue growth outpaced capacity growth. Isolating just those carriers that reported figures for both the 2013 and 2012 rankings, the driver force increased 2.2 percent, while the number of power units operated was up 1.5 percent. This reaffirms comments made by carriers that they are being conservative as the recovery matures.Read More
