TNT: “TNT continues to see modest improvement in the European economy. However, given that the global economic recovery remains fragile, caution remains warranted. The focus on costs and cash will therefore continue. In Express, volumes and revenues are expected to be well above 2009 levels. The 2H2010 operating margin is expected to be in line with 1H2010’s. Yield pressure in Europe and cost developments outside Europe are not expected to be offset sufficiently by efficiency gains. Specific yield-management and ongoing cost-containment actions, once fully phased in, should increase the operating margin,” Company statement. Source: TNT, 01-Nov-2010.
