Mr. Cox added, "For full year 2018 in Ocean Transportation, we continue to expect improvements in each of our core tradelanes with the exception of Guam and China. In Guam, we expect to face continued competitive pressure, and in China we continue to expect modestly lower volume coming off an exceptionally strong 2017. We continue to expect Ocean Transportation's full year 2018 operating income to be modestly higher than the level achieved in 2017. For 2018 in Logistics, we are raising our Outlook for the year given the strong trends across all service lines."
