BNSF Railway and J.B. Hunt Transport Services announced a new agreement that strengthens their partnership and expands their intermodal business. The two companies plan to work together to improve the customer experience and provide faster and more reliable service.
The agreement will allow BNSF to provide J.B. Hunt with additional capacity and access to new markets, while J.B. Hunt will increase its intermodal volumes on BNSF`s network. The companies will also collaborate on new product offerings and supply chain solutions to meet customer demands.
“The expanded agreement between BNSF and J.B. Hunt will help drive continued growth in the intermodal industry,” said Katie Farmer, executive vice president of BNSF. “Our shared commitment to delivering quality service to customers will help ensure our continued success.”
The intermodal transportation industry has seen significant growth in recent years as shippers look for more environmentally-friendly and cost-effective ways to move their goods. Intermodal transportation involves using multiple modes of transportation, such as trains and trucks, to move freight from one destination to another.
By working together, BNSF and J.B. Hunt can better serve their customers and meet the growing demand for intermodal transportation. The agreement also demonstrates a commitment to sustainability and reducing the carbon footprint of the transportation industry.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with BNSF and continue to provide our customers with the high-quality service they have come to expect from J.B. Hunt,” said John Roberts, president and CEO of J.B. Hunt. “Together we can offer even more efficient and innovative transportation solutions.”
The BNSF-J.B. Hunt agreement is just one example of how collaboration and partnerships in the transportation industry can lead to greater success for all involved. As the industry continues to evolve, it is important for companies to work together to meet customer needs and drive growth.
