Review and Outlook

"We are encouraged with our results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012," said James N. Jannello, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer.

Jannello concluded, "With the recent investments in our freezer and cold storage capabilities, we anticipate a healthy expansion in warehouse business with our current customers as well as attracting new customers. Looking ahead, and in the very short term, we are working to raise additional capital in order to grow the transportation logistics segment to profitability."
