Radiant Logistics's SIR currently stands at 3.06. In other words for every 100,000 Radiant Logistics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3060 shares are currently held short.

However Radiant Logistics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Radiant Logistics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Radiant Logistics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Radiant Logistics's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Radiant Logistics shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0119% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Radiant Logistics shares, roughly 12 shares are currently held short).
