She found herself working more and more as the firm developed, assisting with communications, financial statements, and bookkeeping. She quickly progressed to full-time employment. With five trucks and seven trailers, the couple co-founded J.B. Hunt Transport in 1969. Its success is a result of the Hunts’ hard work and entrepreneurial drive. J.B.
