Overnite Holding Inc. reported operating income of $12.6 million on $341.2 million in revenue, a 20% gain compared with the $10.5 million operating income on $308.8 million in revenue in 2002.

Less-than-truckload tonnage was up 5.4% for the reporting period, primarily reflecting the closure of Consolidated Freightways in September and an improvement in the economy late in the quarter.
