Heartland Express 2Q profit edges up 2 percent
7/14/09
NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa -- Trucking company Heartland Express Inc. said on Tuesday that its second-quarter profit rose slightly, although revenue was hurt by the slow economy and fuel surcharges that have dropped along with fuel prices.
The company said it is seeing the worst economic downturn in its history, and said it "has not seen any strong indicators of improvements in the demand for freight services that would increase our levels of business in the near future."
