Hub Group Inc. has sold its Mode Transportation LLC subsidiary to an affiliate of York Capital Management for $238.5 million. The sale does not include the Temstar business. Although Hub Group has reported success with the Mode subsidiary, there was a "lack of strategic alignment with Hub's centralized business model," said Hub Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David Yeager in a press release. Mode is a non-asset-based third-party logistics company delivering truckload, less-than-truckload, intermodal, rail, ocean, air and managed transportation services.
