  ORBCOMM and Hub Group Launch Advanced Telematics Solution for Intermodal
  Container Market

             Delivers Improvements in Performance and Utilization

Business Wire

ROCHELLE PARK, N.J. -- December 17, 2013

ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq:ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M)
solutions, today announced a multi-year agreement with Hub Group, Inc. (Hub
Group) (Nasdaq:HUBG) to deploy ORBCOMM’s GT 2300 state-of-the-art intermodal
container tracking and monitoring platform. This agreement reinforces
ORBCOMM’s position as the leader in intermodal container tracking solutions
featuring GPRS or satellite communication as stated in Berg Insight’s May 2013
Container Tracking and Security Report.

A leading provider of comprehensive intermodal, truck brokerage and logistics
services throughout North America, Hub Group evaluated several providers and
selected ORBCOMM to develop this telematics solution. Hub Group will integrate
ORBCOMM’s GT 2300 solution to more accurately identify loading and unloading
events, which should reduce container idle time and increase customer
satisfaction. Hub Group anticipates ORBCOMM’s advanced GT 2300 platform will
improve the information flow across the multiple touch points between its
intermodal/drayage and back-office operations, providing customers with
greater visibility to their loads. In addition, this solution further
differentiates Hub Group in the market by improving the timeliness of pick-up
and delivery information, which is expected to lead to improved equipment
utilization.

ORBCOMM’s GT 2300 is the first device of its kind to use customizable
reporting profiles to optimize critical data delivery and power management for
extended battery life. This unique device is also designed to fit internally
within the container corrugations to avoid damage during cargo loading,
unloading and movement. ORBCOMM’s powerful systems solution combines position,
load stage, door events, and cargo status to provide efficient delivery of
vital asset information where and when customers need it.

“We are pleased to have been selected as Hub Group’s telematics solution
provider,” said Marc Eisenberg, Chief Executive Officer of ORBCOMM. “Hub
Group’s selection of the GT 2300 demonstrates the utility of ORBCOMM solutions
in the intermodal marketplace as we help drive this industry to higher levels
of performance.”

“This long-term agreement with ORBCOMM demonstrates our shared commitment to
technology, innovation and leadership. This engagement demonstrates our
confidence in ORBCOMM’s expertise in developing premier, end-to-end telematics
systems,” said Chris Kravas, Chief Intermodal Officer at Hub Group. “ORBCOMM’s
solution will play a significant role in improving shipment visibility and
enhancing service to our customers.”

Hub Group will begin deployment of the ORBCOMM system in the first quarter of
2014.
