Universal Logistics Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: ULH) reported net income of $6.2 million, compared to $20 million during second quarter 2019, a 69% decline, according to the company’s earnings report released on Thursday.
On a per-share basis, the Warren, Michigan-based company said it had net income of 23 cents per share, on total operating revenues of $258 million. This compares to 70 cents per share during the second quarter of 2019 on total operating revenues of $383.2 million.

Operating revenues from the company’s truckload services in the second quarter was $40.5 million, a reduction of $24.3 million compared to the same period last year.

Brokerage services revenue for the second quarter was $62.8 million, a 29.8% decline compared to one year earlier. The decrease is primarily due to a 17.2% decrease in the number of brokerage loads moved and a 16.7% decrease in average operating revenue per load.
During the second quarter of 2020, Universal brokered 47,797 loads, compared to 57,710 loads during the same period last year, a 17% decrease.
