R+L developing new tech to ensure compliance with US/Canada Shipping Requirements

Published by:

Beginning November 1, 2012 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will require all road and rail carriers to submit electronic transmission of cargo information before freight reaches the border. R+L Carriers is working to update our e-communication process with our patented in-cab scanning devices to achieve compliance well ahead of the scheduled November 1, 2012 deadline.

What are the new requirements?

The new CBSA requirements are part of the Advance Commercial Information (ACI) program. This program enables the CBSA to quickly obtain comprehensive information regarding shipments moving across the border, to protect the health, safety and security of Canadian citizens while facilitating the movement of low-risk shipments.
eManifest is the third phase of ACI and affects carriers for all highway and rail shipments. Phase 1, implemented in 2004, dealt with marine carriers, while Phase 2, implemented in 2006, affected air and freight forwarders. The information submitted is based partially on the shipper’s documents – such as complete descriptions of the shipments. Additional information submitted will include dispatch-related facts such as the identity of the trucks, trailers and tractors that will carry shipments across the border, the time the cargo will reach the border, etc. Canada Customs must validate and approve the shipments for entry into Canada. This information is in addition to the current PARS clearance process that supports Northbound shipments moving into Canada today.

What do you need to do differently?

Nothing. You will simply continue to provide customs documentation at the time of pick up or send them directly to your broker.

How is the R+L Carriers/Day & Ross Partnership preparing for this?

Both R+L Carriers Tracking  and Day & Ross’ Information Technology Teams are updating our systems to accommodate the additional requirements for compliance with the new eManifest regulations. Testing is in progress and as outlined above R+L and Day & Ross will be fully compliant well in advance of the CBSA scheduled November 1, 2012 effective date.

Panalpina outperforms market in second quarter

Published by:

In the second quarter of 2012, the Panalpina Group achieved a gross profit of CHF 363 million. This was only slightly below the previous year (-2%), despite a globally receding air freight market and several rate increases by ocean carriers that put pressure on margins. Panalpina’s volume growth in both Ocean and Air Freight was above the average market growth. Due to continued cost discipline EBITDA could be kept stable at CHF 34 million quarter-on-quarter. The Group achieved a consolidated profit of CHF 17 million.

“We managed to gain market shares. We did better than the market not only in ocean freight but also in air freight where the market declined further in the second quarter of 2012“, said CEO Monika Ribar. “In ocean freight, the carrier’s steep rate increases on important routes caused margin headwinds but thanks to our record volumes we could still increase the division’s gross profit.”

Sluggish development of global economy reflected in regions’ performance

Net forwarding revenue in the second quarter went up by 2.4% to CHF 1,668 million. Gross profit in the second quarter almost reached previous year level. It came in at CHF 363 million (-2%) despite a globally receding air freight market and several rate increases by ocean carriers. Continued growth in Latin America led to a new second quarter (and half year) gross profit record of CHF 43 million (+7.5%). The sluggish development of the global economy was reflected in the other regions’ performance. Gross profit in Asia Pacific decreased to CHF 75 million (-3.8%) due to slowing exports to mature markets. In the EMEA region strong exports could only partly offset weak imports resulting in a decrease of gross profit to CHF 179 million
(-2.2%). In a weak environment, gross profit also decreased in North America to CHF 66 million (-5.7%). The Group’s gross profit margin decreased to 21.8% in the second quarter (22.8% in Q2 2011) mainly due to the rate increases by ocean carriers but remained stable at 22.7% for the first half.

Market share gains in Ocean and Air Freight

Ocean Freight recorded a new volume record for the second quarter (and half year). Panalpina shipped 7% more TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) than the year before, again growing more than twice as fast as the market (market: +3%). Gross profit per TEU of Ocean Freight decreased by 5% as carriers enforced considerable rate increases in particular on the Far East Westbound route. These rate increases could not yet be fully passed on to customers in the second quarter. Still, the lower unit profitability was more than offset by the higher volumes, leading to an increase of gross profit to CHF 110 million (+2%).

In Air Freight, too, Panalpina did better than the market. As the market weakened further in the second quarter, receding by 4%, Panalpina’s volumes decreased by 3%. Contraction of gross profit (-6%) was mainly due to the lower volumes. Gross profit reached CHF 162 million in the second quarter of 2012. Gross profit per ton of Air Freight decreased by 3% year-on-year but was stable quarter-on-quarter.

Moderate gross profit growth in Logistics (+1%) reflected the slowing economic environment. Q2 gross profit reached CHF 91 million.

Continued cost discipline kept EBITDA sequentially stable

In 2011, Panalpina made important investments especially in its product divisions. Because of an expected weak market development for 2012, the Group then introduced cost containment measures in the last quarter of 2011. Due to continued cost discipline EBITDA could be kept stable at CHF 34 million quarter-on-quarter. EBITDA-to-gross profit margin also remained stable quarter-on-quarter. The Group achieved a consolidated profit of CHF 17 million in Q2. For the first half of 2012, a loss of CHF 23 million resulted because of the provisions of CHF 59 million for the EU and Swiss antitrust fines made in the first quarter.

Outlook

“We anticipate a soft recovery of the air freight market in the second half of 2012 and continued market growth in ocean freight. Further significant rate increases in air and ocean freight seem unlikely“, said Ribar. Panalpina expects the air freight market to contract by 1% for the whole year. In ocean freight, a market growth of 3-4% is expected. The Group’s target is to outperform the market. Panalpina’s group-wide cost containment measures including a hiring freeze remain in place. As of August 1st 2012, Ribar will act as the Group’s CFO ad interim until Robert Erni takes office.

Aramex reports 14% growth of net profits in the second quarter of 2012

Published by:

Dubai, UAE; July 25th, 2012: Aramex (DFM: ARMX), the global logistics and transportation solutions provider, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2012, reflecting continued strong results with healthy growth in revenues and net profits.

The company’s revenues in the second quarter of 2012 increased to AED 782 million, up 21% compared to AED 648 million in the same period of 2011, and the net profits rose to AED 64.4 million, up from AED 56.5 million in the second quarter of 2011, representing an increase of 14%.

Total revenues for the first half of 2012 grew by 23% to AED 1,528 million from AED 1,243 million in the first half of 2011 and the net profits increased to reach AED 125 million, a growth of 18% over the AED 106 million achieved in the first six months of 2011.

“Despite the slowdown in the global economy, we continue to deliver strong results. We are obviously very happy with our revenue and net profit growth across all services”, said Fadi Ghandour, Aramex’s Founder and CEO. “This is attributed to the very strong performance in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, whose economies continue to grow. Furthermore, our acquisitions in the past couple of years, in the emerging economies of South East Asia and Africa, continue to contribute significantly”.

Aramex’s operations in Egypt, one of its key global markets, continues to improve gradually since the beginning of the year, yet the outlook for the short to medium term remains unclear due to the economy’s vulnerability to the political conditions in the country, which was evident in the month of June following the presidential elections, as the company’s operations witnessed a significant slowdown.

Ghandour stated that the company is continuing its strategy to expand its global network through a number of acquisitions and greenfield operations in emerging growth markets in Africa, South East Asia and Central Asia, and he added, “While our strategic acquisitions in 2011 are bearing fruits with an increasing contribution to our global revenue, initial investments in our greenfield operations in Africa continue to weigh down on our immediate quarterly results and are expected to start contributing positively to our revenues by 2013. With that in mind, I am confident of our direction and performance for the rest of the year”.
