Mike: Thanks Dan. I’m with AM Transport Services, we are a third party logistics provider, located in Olney, Ill. We’ve been in business going on 25 years. In our portfolio of services we offer truckload, LTL, intermodal and some technology services as well. The largest part of our business is on the truck load side. We do go about it in a fashion where we really focus on the carrier sales side of the things. We learn their needs through needs analysis and then take that known capacity and turn over to our sales team and then approach customers with known capacity, so today’s topic is good for us as well.
Dan: Thanks Mike. Kevin...
