Trucking Turnaround? Companies Report Rising Revenue

The troubled trucking giant, based in Overland Park, Kan., has embarked on a restructuring plan, but last week Fitch Ratings lowered the company's debt rating to "C." If the restructuring fails, it's bankruptcy for YRC.

FedEx Freight and J.B Hunt Transport Services retained their No. 2 and No. 3 rankings on the list. J.B. Hunt reported an 18 percent improvement in revenue last year compared with 2009.

In fact, all the companies retained their same places on the list through No. 13 CalArk International of Little Rock. Willis Shaw Express of Elm Springs placed at No. 14 last year, but dropped off this year's list when it failed to respond to the survey. Oakley Trucking Inc. of North Little Rock took its place.
