Today this company has grown into one of the largest truckload transportation companies in the United States with annual revenues of over $3 billion. The company primarily operates large semi-trailer trucks, and provides transportation services throughout the continental United States, Canada and Mexico. The company currently employs over 16,000 employees and operates in excess of 12,000 trucks. Over 47,000 trailers and containers can be found in the company's fleet. The company's major competitors in the United States are, YRC Worldwide, Inc., Swift Transportation, Schneider National and Werner Enterprises.
