    One-on-One: A Conversation with Hub Group’s Phil Yeager

    Hub Group is the second largest domestic intermodal provider and one of the Top 25 freight brokers and contract logistics providers in the US, providing capacity not only for freight on the rails but also traveling on trucks. For many intermodal shippers, Hub Group is first or second in their routing guide and a critical piece of moving freight on Norfolk Southern Railway and Union Pacific Railroad. For trucking shippers, Hub Group provides several services, including truckload brokerage and dedicated truckload capacity with more than 5,500 company branded trailers. In this session, Journal of Commerce senior editor Ari Ashe will talk with Phil Yeager about the current state of the intermodal and trucking markets, including the pricing environment in both modes and demand for rail and truck services. Other subjects will include the importance of relationships; how Hub Group approaches the customer experience from ground-level interactions between the customer service representatives and the shippers; and what shippers need to know going into 2025 with their trucking and intermodal business.
