Eric W. Kirchner, chief executive officer, said, "The anemic global economy and weak freight environment continued to weigh on results in our fiscal 2013 second quarter, which together with currency translation led to a 10.9 percent decline in revenues. Trends apparent throughout the industry in the first quarter continued into the second, with companies still favoring ocean freight over airfreight and lower weight per shipment. In addition, clients have become increasingly careful in their freight and logistics spending. Airfreight was once again impacted more than other modes, with tonnage falling 11 percent compared to the second quarter last year. Transportation rates in ocean freight have risen significantly this year, putting pressure on yields and net revenue per unit. Contract logistics and distribution was stable in the second quarter. Revenues in the segment were lower than the same period last year primarily due to currency effects, while operating income improved."
