Discussion of Third Quarter 2013 Results

Our truckload net revenues decreased 1.3 percent in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012. Our truckload volumes increased approximately 13 percent in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012. Our North American truckload volumes increased approximately nine 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 third quarter of 2013. Our truckload net revenue margin decreased in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012, due primarily 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 two percent in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012. In North America, our truckload transportation costs increased approximately four percent, excluding the estimated impacts of the change in fuel.
