JB Hunt Transport Services
Freight Services in Newark, NJ
As a living example of the American dream fulfilled, J. B. Hunt guided his billion dollar trucking empire with the same enthusiasm and raw fortitude from which it started. Johnnie Bryan Hunt was born in Cleburne County, Arkansas during the depression and like many men of his generation was forced to sacrifice his education in order to work for his family's survival. He left school after the seventh grade, at the age of 12 to work in his uncle's sawmill. In the years that followed he picked cotton, harvested grain, sold lumber, auctioned livestock, drove a truck, sold lawn sod, invented a rice hull press, designed and built a specialty poultry truck, began several businesses, lost 1000's of dollars yet made millions more.
