C.H. Robinson Reports Fourth Quarter Results

Stocks in this article: CHRW

Our truck net revenues, which consist of truckload and less-than-truckload (“LTL”) services, increased 7.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. Our truckload volumes increased approximately 12 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. Our North American truckload volumes increased eight percent. We estimate that our acquisition of Apreo contributed approximately four percent to our volume growth in the fourth quarter of 2012. The Apreo business has a large number of short haul shipments in Poland. Our truckload net revenue margin decreased in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, due to increased cost per mile. In North America, excluding the estimated impacts of the change in fuel, our average truckload rate per mile charged to our customers increased approximately one percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. In North America, our truckload transportation costs increased approximately two percent, excluding the estimated impacts of the change in fuel. Our LTL net revenues increased approximately 15 percent. The increase was driven by an increase in total shipments of approximately 16 percent, partially offset by decreased net revenue margin.

Our intermodal net revenues decreased 11.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. This was due to decreased net revenue margin, offset partially by volume growth. Our net revenue margin decline was due to a change in our mix of business and increased cost of capacity.

Our ocean transportation net revenues increased 98.0 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. Excluding the estimated impact of two months of Phoenix operations, our ocean transportation net revenues increased approximately three percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. This increase, excluding Phoenix, was due to increased pricing, partially offset by decreased volumes.

Our air transportation net revenues increased 81.0 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. Excluding the estimated impact of two months of Phoenix operations, we estimate that air transportation net revenues increased 19 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. This increase, excluding Phoenix, was due to decreased cost of capacity and increased pricing, partially offset by decreased volumes.
