Baron Funds Comments on C.H. Robinson Worldwide

May 24, 2012 | About:

Shares of C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHRW), the leading U.S. truck broker, detracted from performance after the company reported disappointing earnings. While truckload freight volumes are improving, the company is experiencing temporary margin pressure as its costs increase faster than its rates. We believe this issue will self-correct as gross volumes accelerate. Longer-term, we expect the company to continue to gain share and benefit as transportation outsourcing to well-established logistics firms continues to grow. Shippers increasingly rely on brokers such as C.H. Robinson for their expansive carrier network and spot market intelligence to insure optimal pricing and movement of their freight. (Matt Weiss)
