Expeditors Reports Record Second Quarter 2011 EPS Of $.44 Per Share 1

“Even with the global economic and political storms swirling around us, we must ultimately accept that we are 'the captains of our own destiny.' Being Resolute is one of our key cultural attributes and it has served us well in the past 30 years as we've endured a myriad of challenges. Being Resolute means we choose the path that adds long-term value to Expeditors, in tough times or in good times," Rose continued. "We will focus on attracting and retaining the best and brightest people, without whose dedicated efforts we wouldn't be where we are. We're grateful for their contributions and express that gratitude by investing in them and in their careers. The efficiencies gained from investments in our information technology systems and productivity initiatives continues to pay off for us, and we'll continue those as well. Putting our people and their productivity first allows us to better serve our customers' needs. The exciting thing about our business model is that we can't add value to Expeditors without adding value to our customers' supply chain. That's the way we create satisfied customers and that's the way we grow market share,” Rose concluded.

Expeditors is a global logistics company headquartered in Seattle, Washington. The company employs trained professionals in 185 full-service offices, 64 satellite locations and 2 international service centers located on six continents linked into a seamless worldwide network through an integrated information management system. Services include air and ocean freight forwarding, vendor consolidation, customs clearance, marine insurance, distribution and other value added international logistics services.
