   Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.26 per diluted share, a slight drop from $0.27 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2014.
   While total operating revenues for the quarter saw a 2.8 percent year-over-year decline to $168.8 million, operating revenues, net of fuel surcharges jumped 6.6 percent year-over-year to $154.0 million.
   For the full year in 2015, Marten Transport’s net income surged 19.8 percent from 2014 to $35.7 million.
   The company increased diluted earnings per share to $1.06 per diluted share for 2015, compared to $0.89 per diluted share in 2014.
