USA Truck, Inc. today announced first-quarter operating revenues, before fuel surcharges, of $65,714,114, an increase of 6.6% from the same quarter of 2002.

The carrier's earnings decreased to a net loss of $1,148,303 for the quarter, compared to net income of $73,853 for the same quarter of 2002.
