Werner quarterly profit boosted by improving freight market

Oct 19 (Reuters) - Werner Enterprises Inc reported a higher quarterly net profit on Thursday, driven by a “meaningfully better” freight environment than in the same period in 2016.

The Omaha, Nebraska-based trucking company posted third-quarter net income of $22.5 million, or 31 cents per share, up from $18.9 million, or 26 cents per share a year earlier.
