Frequently Asked Questions

Is J.B. Hunt a good place to drive?

We are a company founded by a driver for drivers and because of that, we believe we can provide a better job by offering more home time options, business units with varied job types, competitive and consistent pay, comprehensive benefit options and more. Read more about our benefits and why our drivers choose J.B. Hunt! 

What is the history of J.B. Hunt?

In 1961, Johnnie Bryan and Johnelle Hunt started a rice hull business in Arkansas. They then purchased five trucks and seven trailers, which would be the catalyst behind J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. becoming a transportation and logistics powerhouse. Mr. Hunt was a truck driver, himself, and that perspective drove the Hunt's to ensure that our company operates as one founded by a driver for drivers. We believe a focus on our people, technology and capacity has made us successful and will help us grow and innovate. Even with over 60 years in the business, we believe we're just getting started and will continue to search out the next big thing in transportation solutions for our customers while never forgetting where we came from.
