    Total revenues were $4.29 billion, up 13.4 percent year-over-year, fueled by growth across all transportation service lines, C.H. Robinson said. Revenues for the quarter surpassed the Zacks consensus estimate by 0.36 percent.
    C.H. Robinson’s effective tax rate for the quarter was 26.5 percent, compared to 35.2 percent for the third quarter of 2017, driven primarily by a $16.9 million benefit from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

   C.H. Robinson averaged 15,291 employees during the quarter, an increase of 2.6 percent from last year’s third quarter.
    Capital expenditures totaled $19.5 million for the quarter and C.H. Robinson said it expects its full-year capital expenditures to total between $60 million and $70 million, with the majority used for technology.

The demise of small trucking companies is very similar to the demise of mid-scale farms, and it’s a serious concern especially as owners of these smaller trucking companies age out of the system.

While UP, CSX and KCS have already reported their Q1 2019 results, CP will report its results on April 23, followed by Norfolk Southern on April 24 and CN on April 29.
