Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. Reports 2011 Results

Hawaii container volume increased two percent in 2011 compared with 2010, due to a new connecting carrier agreement with a large international carrier that commenced at the end of 2010 and other customer gains, partially offset by one additional week in Matson’s 2010 fiscal year. Matson’s Hawaii automobile volume for the year was one percent lower than 2010, due principally to the timing of automobile rental fleet replacement activity. China’s CLX1 container volume decreased two percent in 2011, compared with 2010, principally due to increased competition from excess capacity in the trade. Guam container volume was flat as weaker market conditions were offset by gains related to the departure of Horizon Lines from the trade in mid-November.

Adjusted Ocean Transportation operating profit decreased $37.5 million in 2011, principally due to lower yields and cargo mix resulting from competitive pricing pressure, principally in the China trade, and higher terminal handling and outside transportation costs. These increases were partially offset by higher overall cargo volume. Adjusted operating profit was also impacted by $4.2 million in lower SSAT earnings due to lower volume.

Logistics Services revenue for the fourth quarter of 2011 decreased five percent, or $4.7 million, compared to the fourth quarter of 2010, due primarily to lower international intermodal volume due to the shutdown of CLX2, and 14 percent lower highway volume resulting from the loss of certain planned and unplanned full-truckload and less-than-truckload customers or lanes. Additionally, the prior year volume benefited from one additional week of activity during the period.
