J.B. Hunt Transport Inc. is offering carriers and their drivers discounts on products and services — including tires from Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. — through its perks program.
The J.B. Hunt 360 Perks program also features partnerships with SiriusXM and Pilot Flying J. The program is part of J.B. Hunt's ongoing effort "to leverage experience and technology to develop the most efficient transportation systems in North America."
The perks program will offer carriers and their drivers the opportunity to receive:
- fuel discounts —18 cents off the credit price per gallon of diesel fuel from participating Pilot and Flying J travel center locations in the U.S.;
- Pilot myRewards points — up to five Pilot myRewards points for each gallon of diesel fuel;
- discounts on SiriusXM truck radios;
- complimentary SiriusXM subscriptions by purchasing diesel fuel at participating Pilot and Flying J locations in the U.S. using a J.B. Hunt 360 fuel card;
- 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,” says John Roberts, CEO and president 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,” says 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.”
SiriusXM, Pilot Flying J, and Goodyear have integrated their incentives into Carrier 360, so participants can access their J.B. Hunt 360 Perks account information, sign up for SiriusXM, view their Pilot myRewards account, and check out the latest offerings from Goodyear, all within the platform.
They also can use the app to complete fuel purchases, which will earn them additional Pilot myRewards points.
