J.B. Hunt started out as a trucking enterprise and has kept to that focus as it serves customers throughout North America from its Lowell, Arkansas, headquarters. It primarily provides trucking and intermodal services in addition to supply chain solutions. The company had its best profit ever in 2013, and it ascended to the Fortune 500 for the first time.

J.B. Hunt has 18,467 employees, located in the 48 contiguous states of the United States. The company reported $5.2 billion in revenue in 2013 due to an increase of 13 percent in loads moved by the intermodal division.
