             (EXECUTED IN DUPLICATE) BOND # 65-0130-11738-92-9


         Know all men by these presents, That we WOOTTON TRANSPORTATION SERVICES, INC., OF
DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA as Principal (hereinafter called Principal) and OLD REPUBLIC SURETY
COMPANY a corporation created and existing under the laws of the State of WISCONSIN as Surety
(hereinafter called Surety) are held and firmly bound unto the United States of America in the sum of
$10,000.00, for which payment, well and truly to be made, we bind ourselves and our heirs, executors,
administrators, successors, and assigns, jointly and severally, firmly by these payments.

          WHEREAS, the principal is or intends to become a Broker pursuant to the provisions of Part II of
the Interstate Commerce Act, and the rules and regulations of the Interstate Commerce Commission
relating to insurance or other security for the protection of travelers and shippers, and has elected to file
with the Interstate Commerce Commission such a bond as will insure financial responsibility and the
supplying of transportation subject to part II of said Act in accordance with Contracts agreements, or
arrangements therefore, and

         WHEREAS, the bond is written to assure compliance by the Principal as a licensed Broker of
Transportation by motor vehicle with section 211 of the interstate Commerce Act, and the rules and
regulations of the Interstate Commerce Commission, relating to insurance and other security for the
protection of travelers and shippers, and shall inure to the benefit of any and all travelers or shippers to
whom the Principal may be held legally liable for any of the damages herein described.

          NOW, THEREFORE, the condition of this obligation is such that if the Principal shall pay or cause
to be paid to travelers or shippers by motor vehicle any sum or sums for which the Principal may be held
legally liable by reason of the Principal’s failure faithfully to perform, fulfill, and carry out all contracts,
agreements, and arrangements by the Principal while his bond is in effect for the supplying of
transportation subject to part II of the Interstate Commerce Act under license issued to the Principal by
the Interstate Commerce Commission, then this obligation shall be void, otherwise to remain in full force
and effect.

          The liability of the Surety shall not be discharged by any payment of succession of payments
hereunder unless and until such payments shall amount to the aggregate to the penalty of the bond, but
in no event shall the Surety’s obligation hereunder exceed the amount to the aggregate to the penalty.
The Surety agrees to furnish written notice to the Interstate Commerce Commission forthwith of all suits
filed, judgments rendered, and payments made by said Surety under this bond.

         This bond is effective the 3rd day of December 2003, 12:01 am, standard time at the address of
the Principal as stated herein and shall continue in force until terminated as hereafter provided. The
Principal or the Surety may at any time terminate this bond by written notice to the Interstate Commerce
Commission at its office in Washington DC, such termination to become effective thirty (30) days after
actual receipt of said notice by the Commission. The Surety shall not be liable hereunder for the
payment of any damages herein before described which arise as the result of any contracts, agreements,
undertakings or arrangements made by the Principal for the supplying of transportation after the
termination of this bond as herein provided, but such termination shall not effect the liability of the
Surety hereunder for the payment of any such damages arising as the result of contracts, agreements, or
arrangements made by the Principal for the supplying of transportation prior to the date such termination
becomes effective.

         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the said Principal and Surety have executed this instrument on the 3rd
day of DECEMBER, 2003.
