Hub Group's fourth quarter income topped $13 million, a 54% increase over the same period in 2005. Its operating margin for the quarter increased to 5.2% due in part to "yield enhancement efforts," improved operational efficiencies and growth in drayage and truck brokerage.
Intermodal revenue for the fourth quarter was up 1.5% to $307.1 million, including full-quarter results from Comtrak.
For the full year, Hub Group said costs and expenses had continued to rise, up 11.3% in 2006. This, it said, was due in part to the Comtrak acquisition.
