During the fiscal year, PAM executed a 2-for-1 stock split that was finalized in August, resulting in PAM’s outstanding shares increasing to 11 million total.

“We made significant progress in the quarter and in 2021 at PAM with profitable organic growth,” PAM CEO Joe Vitiritto said. “The growth has allowed our team to offer creative capacity solutions to our customers in unprecedented times. Our drivers are owed a big thanks for how they navigated the many challenges that 2021 presented them both personally and professionally.

The truckload segment reported an uptick in total loads carried with fewer miles traveled for both the quarter and the fiscal year.
