Hub Group, Orbcomm Sign Tracking Deal
Hub Group Inc. and Orbcomm Inc. signed an agreement that calls for installation of Orbcomm’s GT2300 tracking and monitoring system on the logistics companies’ containers.

The statement said Hub Group, based Lombard, Ill., selected the telematics solution to better track when boxes are loaded and emptied, allowing Hub to reduce idle time.

The statement also said the technology includes links to drayage and back-office services to further enhance visibility for customers.

Hub Group will start to deploy the system in the first quarter
