J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. recently held its annual Million Mile Celebration at corporate headquarters in Lowell, Arkansas, to recognize 69 drivers for driving 2 million, 3 million and 4 million miles without a preventable accident. The company drivers received more than $900,000 in safe driver bonuses.
“This celebration is one of our favorite events of the year,” said Nick Hobbs, chief operating officer and president of contract services. “It takes a great amount of patience and dedication to drive 2 million-plus safe miles, and we’re honored to recognize the men and women who go above and beyond each day to ensure J.B. Hunt remains one of the safest fleets on the road.”
J.B. Hunt drivers and employees participated in the Million Mile Walk of Fame, a company tradition to celebrate the drivers and their families. During the event, employees lined four flights of stairs to congratulate drivers with cheers, applause and high fives.
In addition to the Walk of Fame, drivers were treated to an honorary lunch, an awards ceremony and a visit with company leadership. Drivers also will receive recognition on J.B. Hunt’s Million Mile Wall, which includes more than 4,000 drivers who have achieved at least 1 million safe miles
