For the full year, consolidated revenue increased 7.1 percent while operating profit rose 8.5 percent.

International package revenue rose 17 percent in the quarter, and operating profit increased 56 percent. U.S. package revenue rose 7 percent in the quarter while operating profit was up 9.6 percent.
