TERION PRESENTS PIONEER AWARD TO J.B. HUNT
LOWELL, ARKANSAS, March 1, 2004 - J. B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: JBHT), one of the largest transportation logistics companies in North America, has been named the recipient of the 2004 Terion Pioneer Award.
“We are proud to honor one of the leading innovators in the transportation industry,” said Ken Cranston, president of Terion. “J.B. Hunt was one of the first companies to deploy trailer tracking technology throughout its fleet. The success of this initiative has allowed them to deliver better customer service while achieving significant operational improvements.”
Terion, a leading two-way wireless data communication and information solution provider, created the Pioneer Award as a way to recognize transportation companies who are proven leaders in technology innovation. J.B. Hunt was selected because of the company’s early adoption and successful implementation of Terion trailer tracking.
“Trailer tracking allows us to bring a higher standard of value and service to our customers every day,” said Kirk Thompson, president and CEO for J.B. Hunt. “It is an honor to be recognized for these efforts by one of the leaders in this technology arena.”
J.B. Hunt and Terion partnered three years ago to begin implementation of Terion’s FleetView® and Cargo Sensor modules on Hunt’s trailer fleet. To date, this technology has been installed on virtually all of the company’s 20,000 dry van trailers. This is the first year Terion has presented the award.
