Improving Safety and Efficiency

J.B. Hunt is a company founded by a driver for drivers. Drivers are at the center of all we do, and with them in mind, we created the J.B. Hunt DRIVE app. The DRIVE app gives drivers access to features that help them do their jobs safely and efficiently, all in one application.

We utilize other safety technology, like forward collision warning systems and cameras in our company cabs, with one goal in mind: to keep our people safe. We’re proud of the technology and processes we’ve put in place that continue to improve supply chain efficiency while putting safety first.

Investing in Technology

Since 1961, we’ve been a company rooted in innovation. Mr. Hunt was known for finding unique ways to solve common industry challenges and that spirit continues today through our commitment to technology. Over the last few years, we’ve made a $500 million investment in technology put toward enhancing the capabilities of our current platforms and developing new solutions that will better our company and our industry.

Our investment in technology also includes investment in our people. Within Engineering and Technology, we host hackathons and help you achieve company-funded certifications designed to sharpen your skills and help you play an important role in our company’s future.
