“The same market trends we experienced during our 2012 first quarter, as we suggested at the time, continued into the second quarter. That said, we saw volume growth in all areas of our business with the exception of airfreight, despite navigating in what people are finally acknowledging is a very challenging and uncertain global economy,” said Peter J. Rose, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Ocean freight yields dipped, sequentially, as is typical of the second quarter, due to the time lag between when carrier rate increases during annual May contract negotiations are commercially implemented and on a year-over-year basis, reflecting the magnitude of this years' buy rate increases, as carriers moved aggressively to stabilize their precarious financial situation. This was mitigated somewhat by 7% net revenue growth in our direct ocean forwarding product. In spite of flat shipment counts, we continued to experience similar year-over-year trends with respect to airfreight tonnage (smaller shipments, diminished global airfreight demand, lower levels of customer specific infrastructure and projects) that we highlighted in our 2012 first quarter release. Customs brokerage and other services, posted positive growth in net revenue, primarily due to the contributions from our continued international roll out of our domestic time definite product, Transcon services,” Rose continued.
