Kuehne & Nagel third-quarter core profit grows on better market conditions
Oct 20 (Reuters) - Swiss freight-forwarding group Kuehne und Nagel International KNIN.S reported on Tuesday a rise of 31% in third-quarter core earnings, citing strict cost management and improving market environment.
Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) came in at 371 million Swiss francs ($408 million) in July-September, above the 283 million francs a year earlier, as sea freight, the largest part of the group's business, rose 12% due to recovery of demand from small- to mid-size enterprise customers and the increase in imports to Europe and North America from Asia.
