Hub Group (HUBG) Company Overview

Hub Group (NASDAQ:HUBG) is a transportation company that ships goods such as consumer products, automotive parts and retail merchandise. HUBG does not control its own transportation assets (i.e. trucks, railcars, planes) but contracts with third-party carriers like Burlington Northern and Union Pacific (UNP) to move goods. Hub Group buys container-hauling space in bulk from these carriers, and then sells the space to clients at rates cheaper than what they could negotiate independently.[1] The company’s core business intermodal transportation (when goods are shipped using a combination of transportation modes, usually rail and truck), which account for nearly three-quarters of total revenues. The remainder of HUBG’s earnings comes from its truck brokerage (roughly 20%) and logistics (roughly 10%) segments.[2] Operating 21 facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada, Hub Group has become the largest intermodal marketing company in the country and one of the top five truck brokers. Because of its size, HUBG has been able to establish close ties with major railroad suppliers and obtain favorable rates for the use of third-party services. The company earned $1.5 billion in revenue and $34 million in net income in 2009.[3]

Intermodal shipping is generally cheaper (although also slower and less flexible) than trucking alone because railroads are about three times more fuel-efficient than long-haul trucks.[4] In the short term, rising fuel prices lead to greater demand for HUBG's intermodal services. Ironically, these same fuel prices present a challenge for the company's truck brokerage division which is already suffering from an ongoing industry wide shortage of truckers.
