JB Hunt Launches Reward Program For Drivers
LOWELL, AR (TruckingNewsNow.com) (Source: JB Hunt) — J.B. Hunt Transport Services has teamed up with SiriusXM, Pilot Flying J, and The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company to create a rewards program for Carrier 360 by J.B. Hunt, a component of the company’s technology solution – J.B. Hunt 360°® – designed to help carriers save money, spend more time driving, and have an overall better experience. The program is part of the company’s ongoing effort to leverage experience and technology to develop the most efficient transportation systems in North America.
J.B. Hunt 360 Perks™ will provide carriers and their drivers the opportunity to receive fuel discounts, Pilot myRewards® points, discounts on SiriusXM truck radios, and complimentary SiriusXM subscriptions by purchasing diesel fuel at participating Pilot and Flying J locations in the United States using a J.B. Hunt 360 fuel card. They can also receive discounts on preventive maintenance, labor, parts, and tires from Pilot Flying J Truck Care and discounts on Goodyear products and services.
“Our company drivers and independent contractors, including third party carriers and owner-operators, are a large part of J.B. Hunt’s continued growth and success,” said John Roberts, president and CEO at J.B. Hunt. “This program focuses on providing carriers and their drivers with great opportunities to succeed. J.B. Hunt 360 Perks brings together J.B. Hunt, a leader in the transportation industry, and three of the biggest names in their respective trades to create what we believe is the best and most comprehensive rewards program available. This program includes discounts on brands and services carriers use every day.”
J.B. Hunt 360 Perks lives within Carrier 360, which allows carriers to optimize their daily operations using machine learning and artificial intelligence. For example, Carrier 360 provides load recommendations based on predicted location, historical lane data, service levels, and personal settings.
“Every improvement we make to Carrier 360 starts with listening to the ongoing needs and interests of carriers,” added Shelley Simpson, president of highway services and chief commercial officer at J.B. Hunt. “Ultimately, we’re redefining the way carriers can do business by helping them reduce wasted time and create operating efficiencies. Our J.B. Hunt 360 Perks program is the next step in helping them improve their bottom line.”
