Apr 29 16
ABF Freight announced unaudited earnings and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016. For the quarter, revenue of $439.5 million compared to $441.2 million in first quarter 2015, a per-day decrease of 2.0%. ABF Freight’s revenue comparison was impacted by lower fuel surcharges attributable to the significant year-over-year decrease in diesel fuel prices. An operating loss of $9.0 million and an operating ratio of 102.1% compared to breakeven operating income in first quarter 2015 with operating profit of $0.043 million. Excluding adjustments for nonunion pension settlement charges, an operating loss of $8.3 million against income of $0.883 million a year ago. In addition to the fuel impact, ABF Freight’s first quarter revenue decline was due to reduced freight tonnage levels associated with weak U.S. manufacturing; high customer inventory levels and excess industry capacity available to move larger-sized shipments.
For the quarter, the company reported total workdays were 63.5 against 62.5 a year ago. Billed revenue per CWT was $27.72 against $28.06 a year ago.
