Eric W. Kirchner, chief executive officer, said, "Results in our fiscal 2013 fourth quarter reflect ongoing weakness in the airfreight market and a challenging pricing environment in freight forwarding. In addition, the competitive dynamics in the industry remain the toughest seen in many years. In contract logistics and distribution, we experienced reduced activity at existing locations and made investments to prepare for newly won business. While we secured new business in both segments in the fourth quarter, declines in net revenue from existing accounts more than offset these wins. Clearly these results are not satisfactory. In response, we completed in January and February the previously announced actions necessary to reduce expenses, and we will continue to manage costs throughout fiscal 2014. We also have begun to take steps designed to improve our growth rates, including making changes to our sales organization."
