The company's second-quarter net loss was $837,000 compared with 2002 second quarter net income of $208,000.

"The soft freight environment negatively impacted our utilization during the quarter," said Paxton, who added that miles per tractor were down 1.9% and revenue per tractor down 1.4% over 2002 levels.
