At J.B. Hunt, we know the kind of innovation it takes to be a leader in the transportation industry, and we strive to use that innovation in every aspect of our company. This is why CDL-A owner operators choose to contract with J.B. Hunt. For Truckload contractor Daron, J.B. Hunt has been a great choice for his business.
The load board at J.B. Hunt has never been more accessible thanks to our updates to the J.B. Hunt DRIVE App. For Daron, it’s hard to choose the best feature about the app:
“Really I don’t have just one. It’s the fact that you can see all of your loads that you can actually book … You can do a lot more than just go into the load board without having to use, say the DRIVE app and then having to jump online and look. And just the fact that you don’t necessarily have to be near your truck to get messages or book a load,” said Daron.
After driving for 17 years, Daron knows his business and what it looks like to contract with trucking companies and work with load boards. With all those years of experience, J.B. Hunt is still a top choice for him.
“… [T]he one thing that seems to hold true is that not all percentages are created equal. You know, for instance … J.B. Hunt’s [percentage] plus a fuel surcharge actually ends up paying more it seems like than some other companies,” said Daron.
For Daron, the relationships and respect he finds at J.B. Hunt is what has made him continually choose J.B. Hunt for his business.
“You’re not so much a number at J.B. Hunt – yes, they give you a driver number – but you’re not so much a number as a contractor. You’re actually a person, a person with a name, versus driver ‘whatever,’” said Daron.
At J.B. Hunt, we value drivers and their dedication. For Daron, that has been evident during his time as a contractor. To any owner operators considering contracting with J.B. Hunt, Daron says: “take the dive.”
“I would tell them, anybody who’s really thinking about J.B. Hunt: Go ahead and take the dive. Give J.B. Hunt a try because it may be the best decision you make. Before I came to J.B. Hunt four years ago, I was really contemplating just hanging up my license … I was really thinking about hanging it up, and a buddy of mine told me to try J.B. Hunt, and the rest is history. This is the last company I’m going to be with,” said Daron.
