Diluted net earnings attributable to shareholders per share for the first two quarters of 2013 were $.83, as compared with $.75 for the same period of 2012, an increase of 11%.

“These results are very significant to us and we continue to be encouraged by our progress. The beginning signs of improvement we noticed during our 2013 first quarter, picked up during the second quarter,” said Peter J. Rose, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “While the global economy is still slowly emerging from the fundamental problems that have held it in thrall over the last five years, and slowly is the operative word, we've selectively grown market share this quarter. Our airfreight volumes were up again, for the third straight quarter, by 5%. Ocean FEU count on a yearly quarter-over-quarter basis was up 2%, as was our order management activity. The volatility of the pricing environment continues to require focused attention to both the buy and sell elements of the air and ocean marketplace. We think these results prove we did a good job of that during the second quarter,” Rose went on to say.
