CH Robinson Worldwide, Air Delivery & Freight Beyond UPS And FedEx

When you think of air delivery and freight services the two names that come to mind are FedEx (FDX) and United Parcel Service (UPS). With 3-month returns of 7.88%, this industry should be on your radar. Hopefully, a continuing economic recovery will keep fueling growth.

Although FedEx and UPS are performing very well, a potential gem hiding in the sector is CH Robinson Worldwide Inc (CHRW), which provides freight transportation services and logistic solutions around the world. CH Robinson offers superior returns on both assets and equity and is at a good value compared to its peers. The firm is also rewarding their investors with strong dividend growth.

Check out the metrics below that compare CH Robinson’s results to the industry average.

P/E – 23x vs. 38.8x
ROA – 20.20% vs. 8.22%
ROE – 34.90% vs. 22.45%
Dividend Growth (5yr) – 16.05% vs. .89%
