“Despite ongoing pricing volatility in the ocean markets and an air peak season that didn’t commence in September, as anticipated, we executed well in our 2013 third quarter. Our operating margin remained above our efficiency target point of 30% and our year-over-year growth in ocean and air volumes, 9% in ocean container volumes and 3% in air tonnage, is similar to the trends we’ve experienced over the past several quarters. We definitely view the growth as a continuing positive development,” said Peter J. Rose, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
