In the early 1960s, Johnnie Bryan “J.B.” Hunt began producing poultry litter and selling it to poultry companies in Arkansas. He set up such a company in Stuttgart in 1961 but lost over $20,000 the first year. Eventually, the company turned around, and Hunt was shipping poultry throughout the nation. In 1969, Hunt established a trucking company—with five trucks and seven trailers in the beginning—as a sideline business to his poultry feed company. A decade later, J. B. Hunt Transport Services was shipping goods across the country, and Hunt’s trucking firm eventually became the largest publicly held trucking company in America.
By the 1990s, Hunt presided over a company that was earning over $1 billion annually and was employing thousands of people. The company also spread to Mexico and formed a lucrative partnership with the Santa Fe Railroad—a move that shocked industry insiders but proved to be a winning strategy.
