J.B. Hunt 360 Perks™ will provide carriers and their drivers the
opportunity to receive fuel discounts, Pilot myRewards® points,
discounts on SiriusXM truck radios, and complimentary SiriusXM
subscriptions by purchasing diesel fuel at participating Pilot and
Flying J locations in the United States using a J.B. Hunt 360 fuel card.
They can also receive discounts on preventive maintenance, labor, parts,
and tires from Pilot Flying J Truck Care and discounts on Goodyear
products and services.

"Our company drivers and independent contractors, including third party
carriers and owner-operators, are a large part of J.B. Hunt's continued
growth and success," said John Roberts, president and CEO at J.B. Hunt.
"This program focuses on providing carriers and their drivers with great
opportunities to succeed. J.B. Hunt 360 Perks brings together J.B. Hunt,
a leader in the transportation industry, and three of the biggest names
in their respective trades to create what we believe is the best and
most comprehensive rewards program available. This program includes
discounts on brands and services carriers use every day."

J.B. Hunt 360 Perks lives within Carrier 360, which allows carriers to
optimize their daily operations using machine learning and artificial
intelligence. For example, Carrier 360 provides load recommendations
based on predicted location, historical lane data, service levels, and
personal settings.

"Every improvement we make to Carrier 360 starts with listening to the
ongoing needs and interests of carriers," added Shelley Simpson,
president of highway services and chief commercial officer at J.B. Hunt.
"Ultimately, we're redefining the way carriers can do business by
helping them reduce wasted time and create operating efficiencies. Our
J.B. Hunt 360 Perks program is the next step in helping them improve
their bottom line."
