The operating segments reported below are our segments for which separate financial information is available and for which segment results are evaluated regularly by our Chief Executive Officer in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. We evaluate segment performance based on consolidated revenues and operating income. Net sales of our business segments exclude intersegment sales as these activities are eliminated in consolidation. Corporate expenses are primarily selling, general and administrative expenses not allocated to segments. Our segment information is as follows (in thousands):
Our Aviation segment operating income for the first nine months of 2021 was reduced by $23.7 million primarily attributable to an inventory reserve expense which was recorded in the second quarter of 2021. The inventory reserve increase was primarily due to excess quantities of inventory at levels higher than our updated forecasts of future demand. The continued effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on commercial air travel for our region-specific distribution programs, entered into prior to 2019, resulted in lowered demand assumptions.
The USPS, U.S. Army and Army Reserve, and U.S. Navy are our largest customers. Our customers also include various other government agencies and commercial entities. Our revenue by customer is as follows (in thousands):
