OAK BROOK, Ill., Jan. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hub Group (Nasdaq: HUBG), announced today that it has received Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2021 Green Supply Chain Award for its efforts in prioritizing sustainability.
Hub Group received this award for its sustainability-minded approach to transportation and logistics management. The company proactively measures and reduces customers’ carbon footprint through analysis that allows for the conversion to more efficient transportation and logistics services, including intermodal, less-than-truckload (LTL) consolidation, cross-dock management, and network optimization.

Hub Group’s efforts to convert freight from truck to rail paired with its modern, updated equipment have saved more than 9.7 billion pounds of carbon emissions over the last three years.
“For Hub Group, sustainability remains a top priority in the supply chain,” Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics said. “Whether it’s a new solution, a new program, or just simply a new way of doing business, winners of the 2021 Green Supply Chain Award showcased heightened attention to social responsibility and environmental governance.”
