What are J.B. Hunt’s Owner Operator Opportunities?

J.B. Hunt offers owner operators contracting opportunities within our Intermodal and Truckload fleets with competitive compensation plans and strong miles.

Truckload: Owner operators contracting with our Truckload operations typically move 98% no-touch, over-the-road freight within the states east of I-35. Passengers and small domestic pets are permitted.

Intermodal: Owner operators who contract with our Intermodal division can enjoy local and regional opportunities moving railway containers and are typically home on a daily or weekly basis.
Owner operators can choose from a variety of compensation plans to maximize their profits. Such plans typically fall under mileage-based and percentage-based plans.

Mileage Plan: The carrier pays the owner operator a defined amount of cents per mile for each load hauled. J.B. Hunt’s mileage plans typically compensate an owner operator for loaded and empty miles, plates, permits and tolls (depending on which plan you choose) and offers a flexible fuel charge.

Percentage Plan: The carrier pays the owner operator a defined percentage of the price of each load hauled. J.B. Hunt’s percentage plan typically compensates an owner operator with a percentage of gross load revenue on loaded miles and 100% pass through of shipper's fuel surcharges.
