Werner Enterprises, Inc., a transportation and logistics company, engages primarily in hauling truckload shipments of general commodities in both interstate and intrastate commerce. The company also provides logistics services. Segments The company operates through two segments, Truckload Transportation Services (Truckload) and Value Added Services (VAS). Truckload This segment includes One-Way Truckload and Specialized Services units. One-Way Truckload includes various operating fleets, such as the regional short-haul (Regional) fleet transports various consumer nondurable products and other commodities in truckload quantities within geographic regions across the United States using dry van trailers; the medium-to-long-haul van fleet provides comparable truckload van service through irregular routes; and the expedited fleet provides time-sensitive truckload services utilizing driver teams. Specialized Services provides truckload services dedicated to a specific customer, for a retail distribution center or manufacturing facility, including services for products requiring specialized trailers, such as flatbed or temperature-controlled trailers. The company’s Truckload fleets operate throughout the 48 contiguous U.S. states pursuant to operating authority, both common and contract, granted by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and pursuant to intrastate authority granted by various U.S. states. It also has authority to operate in various provinces of Canada and to provide through-trailer service into and out of Mexico. The principal types of freight that the company transports include retail store merchandise, consumer products, grocery products, and manufactured products. VAS This segment is a non-asset-based transportation and logistics provider. This segment includes four operating units that provide non-trucking services to the company’s customers, including truck brokerage (Brokerage) uses contracted carriers to complete customer shipments; freight management offers a range of single-source logistics management services and solutions; the intermodal unit offers rail transportation through alliances with rail and drayage providers as an alternative to truck transportation; and Werner Global Logistics international provides the management of global shipments from origin to destination using a combination of air, ocean, truck, and rail transportation modes. The company’s Brokerage unit had transportation services contracts with approximately 9,400 carriers as of December 31, 2012. Revenue Equipment As of December 31, 2012, the company operated 6,505 company tractors and had contracts for 645 tractors owned by independent contractors. It operated 23,380 trailers. This total was consisted of 22,199 dry vans, 217 flatbeds, 958 temperature-controlled trailers, and 6 specialized trailers. The company also provides other trailer lengths, such as 48-foot and 57-foot trailers, to meet the specialized needs of certain customers. Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Fleet Truck Sales, sells its used trucks and trailers. Marketing and Operations The company operates in the truckload and logistics sectors of the transportation industry. Its Truckload segment provides specialized services to customers based on each customer’s trailer needs (such as van, flatbed and temperature-controlled trailers); geographic area (regional and medium-to-long-haul van, including transport throughout Mexico and Canada); time-sensitive shipments (expedited); or conversion of their private fleet to the company (dedicated). The company’s VAS segment manages the transportation and logistics requirements for customers, providing customers with additional sources of truck capacity, alternative modes of transportation, a global delivery network and systems analysis to optimize transportation needs. VAS services include truck brokerage, freight management, intermodal transport, and international. The VAS international services are provided through its domestic and global subsidiary companies, and include ocean, air and ground transportation services; door-to-door freight forwarding; and customs brokerage. Majority VAS international services are provided throughout North America, Asia, and Australia, with additional coverage throughout Europe, South America, and Africa. Seasonality After the December holiday season and during the remaining winter months, the company’s freight volumes are lower because some customers reduce shipment levels. Regulation The company is a motor carrier regulated by the DOT in the United States and similar governmental transportation agencies in foreign countries in which it operates. The international services subject the company to regulation by the Transportation Security Administration, and Customs and Borders Protection agencies of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Federal Maritime Commission, and the International Air Transport Association, as well as similar regulatory agencies in foreign jurisdictions.
