OAK BROOK, Ill., July 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hub Group (NASDAQ:HUBG) announced today that it has been named 2016 Intermodal Carrier of the Year by KBX Logistics/Georgia-Pacific based on criteria that included growth, service and technology.
“We don’t believe in handing out a lot of awards. We don’t believe in participation trophies. If you win one of these, it’s pretty impressive,” said Paul Snider, President of KBX Logistics during the KBX Annual Carrier Conference. “In 2016, Hub Group grew their volume with us significantly and worked very hard to improve their proactive communications and the freight statuses that they send us. Their executives and account leadership demonstrated great support in making all of this come together.”
Hub Group has been providing value-added solutions to KBX Logistics/Georgia-Pacific since 1981, when it was known as Fort Howard Paper Company. In 2016, Hub Group spearheaded a program with KBX Logistics/Georgia-Pacific’s network, implementing an aggressive growth strategy along with cutting-edge technology to drive an on-time performance standard of 99%.
“We are honored to be awarded Intermodal Carrier of the Year by our longstanding customer,” said David Yeager, Hub Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We appreciate the recognition of our efforts and we look forward to continuing our collaborative relationship with KBX Logistics and Georgia-Pacific.”
