Even when he was a truck driver himself, J.B. Hunt was developing ideas for how to create “a better life for his family,” Johnelle Hunt said. Not all of the ideas worked, but Johnelle Hunt laughed when describing how intermodal became the “golden goose.”

BSNF, the original rail partner in J.B Hunt Transport’s intermodal operation, moved 1 million loads in 2012.

Johnelle Hunt was presented with recognition for that milestone on Feb. 28 of this year. It would have been her husband’s 86th birthday.
