Revenue per tractor declined 6.5% with loaded miles down 4.9% and revenue per loaded mile excluding fuel down 1.7%. Revenue per loaded mile was flat compared to the first quarter. The carrier expects rate per mile to be positive in the third quarter.The division posted an 85.5% adjusted operating ratio (OR), again excluding the incremental operating costs from COVID, 30 basis points better than the year-ago period. Knight's OR was 84% with Swift posting an 85.3% OR.The company reinstated full-year 2020 earnings guidance. It now expects adjusted earnings per share of $2.15 to $2.30, ahead of the original guidance of $2.00 to $2.15 that was pulled over COVID-related uncertainty last quarter.Shares of KNX are up nearly 2% in early trading.The company doesn't hold a conference call.
