“Our second quarter proved to be a very challenging quarter for us. While our intermodal revenues grew at 9.2% and our domestic volumes in this segment grew by 17.0%, we were unable to take full advantage of this growth with margin and profitability improvement. Our logistics segment operating loss (excluding severance) improved sequentially by $0.9 million, and we have taken several actions in the quarter to improve the financial performance of this segment, however the global freight forwarding market continues to remain quite sluggish,” said Chief Financial Officer John J. Hafferty.
