There are many STARs at Hub Group & we’d like to congratulate Tyler Johnson, Account Management Specialist, on winning the April STAR Award. 

“Tyler was able to help Hub Group stand out from the pack due to his focus and attention to the customer and visits to Clorox at four of their locations. That attention and those visits have built a strong rapport and deep understanding of the business. Tyler has positioned us well for growth in the 2017 intermodal bid as well as secondary customer direct lanes that their primary carriers cannot service as well as Hub Group.” - Michael Kane, Account Manager

Congratulations, Tyler- your first-rate display of service has reached a wide audience! STAR stands for Service, Teamwork, Accountability & Responsiveness; four qualities that Tyler has successfully demonstrated.


With nearly 32,000 containers traveling the roads and rails, Hub Group knew we had something unique to offer: mobile billboards.  Why not designate some of the containers to transport charitable messages?  From that simple idea, the Cause Container campaign was born in 2015. We transformed four of our 53’ containers into mobile billboards with message of hope and action for our charity partners.  For every original photo taken of a Cause Container and posted in social media with the hashtag #CauseContainer, we donated $100 to that partner.

In our first year, we raised nearly $70,000 for our charity partners. 

Our current charity partners:

  • Bright Pink, which educates on breast and ovarian cancer prevention and early detection;

  • Fisher House Foundation, which provides housing to active military, veterans and their families during times of medical crisis. At Hub Group we have over 100 active military and veterans;
  • Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, the top children’s hospital in Illinois and one of the top children’s hospitals in the nation;

  • The National Park Foundation, which manages and preserves our national parks;
  • Chicago Blackhawks Charities, which supports programs and institutions that impact the lives of youth and their families in and around the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois.



Hub Group Trucking, a drayage subsidiary of Hub Group, has a driver-friendly culture that sets us apart from other carriers.

    Pros

    Hub Group rewards hard work. Individuals that take ownership and pride in their performance and want to make a difference work well here. If you're looking to be a clock puncher, this probably isn't the place for you.

    Cons

    Expectations are high and can at times be overwhelming. However, I've always felt that I've become better from the experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Need to spend more individual time with lower level management.
