We believe we have some of the best driving jobs in the industry, but don’t just take it from us! Hear from our intermodal drivers about why they choose to drive with J.B. Hunt.

For local intermodal driver Michael, easy access to maintenance is a great benefit.

“You got a problem, you go into the maintenance shop and those guys get right on it,” he said. “If it’s something that they can get right to it, they’re going to get right to it and then get you out.”

For Javi, being a local driver means he gets more time to relax at home with his family.

“Being home with the family, it’s something I appreciate,” he said. “You relax. You don’t have to worry about a job or driving anything. You’re just spending time with the family. That’s the best part of being an intermodal driver.”
