Discussion of Second Quarter 2013 Results

Our truckload net revenues increased 3.2 percent in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012. Our truckload volumes increased approximately nine percent in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012. Our North American truckload volumes increased approximately five percent. We estimate that our acquisition of Apreo Logistics S.A. (“Apreo”), which was completed in October 2012, contributed approximately four percent to our volume growth in the second quarter of 2013. Our truckload net revenue margin decreased in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012, due primarily to the net revenue margin decline of our European truckload business. In North America, our truckload net revenue margin was relatively flat as rates charged to our customers and truckload transportation costs increased approximately one percent.
