Thanks to online shopping and expedient two-day deliveries, shipping customers are expecting their goods to arrive on their doorstep that much faster. Freight haulers that understand this are in the best position to step up to the doormat. For the latest example, JB Hunt Transport has upgraded its final mile delivery services by acquiring another trucking company. Find out how this can help you find local trucking jobs much faster and start earning more money tomorrow.
JB Hunt has made an investment into the ownership of a household goods company, Cory 1st Choice Home Delivery. Through an expenditure of $100 million, the Arkansas trucking company will be able to expand its final mile delivery capacity. Specifically, JB Hunt will expand to include Final Mile, which is one of Cory 1st Choice Home Delivery’s divisions. This division is one of the biggest cross-dock operations in the US. By adding the Final Mile segment to JB Hunt’s network of nationwide terminals and services, the Arkansas carrier will be better positioned to grow and expand.
Last mile delivery services include warehousing and distribution, which helps to expand local truck driving jobs in Arkansas for truck drivers. All in all, the Final Mile space from Cory 1st Choice Home Delivery will give JB Hunt a whopping 3.1 million-plus square feet for carrying out last mile services. In addition, the Final Mile division has over 100 locations nationwide, which helps JB Hunt further expand its footprint.
When asked about the latest acquisition, JB Hunt CEO and President John Roberts said, “This is a strategic investment that will further advance our final-mile delivery capabilities of ‘big and bulky’ products to consumers and expand our expertise in furniture delivery.” For those shipping customers who are looking for home appliances, bedroom suites, and living room furniture to be delivered, JB Hunt will provide this and more.
Typical final mile services can even include assembly onsite, such as setting up a refrigerator or building an office desk for a shipping customer. These last mile, final stage, white glove services are key to helping shipping customers big and small to get their goods delivered how and where they want.
