See how J B Hunt recognized 77 drivers who achieved two, three, and four million safe miles within the past year.

J B Hunt Transport Services Inc (NASDAQ: JBHT) recently recognized 77 drivers who achieved two, three, and four million safe miles driven within the past year, awarding nearly $1 million in safe driver bonuses.

The elite group was honored by the company during a celebration at its corporate headquarters in Lowell AR recently.

“At J B Hunt we challenge our drivers to be the safest fleet on the road, and these are the champions who lead that effort every day,” said Craig Harper, executive vice-president and chief operations officer at J B Hunt. “They are the example of the commitment, hard work and precision that this company was founded on. One million miles is a monumental accomplishment. To achieve that twice, three times—and for some, four times—makes you one of the most talented drivers out there, and I’m proud to have them on our team.”

The highlight of the celebration was the Million Mile Walk of Fame, a long-standing tradition at J B Hunt. Each Million Mile driver descended four flights of stairs lined with hundreds of employees who showed appreciation for their commitment to safety with applause, high-fives and hugs.

Having previously accomplished one, two, or three safe million miles in their J B Hunt careers, these drivers will receive additional recognition on the firm’s Million Mile Wall. The wall lists the names of all J B Hunt drivers who have reached one million safe miles, which to date totals more than 3,400.

The Million Mile event is the premier celebration for J B Hunt drivers and their families. The company has hosted the ceremony since 2001 and has recognized Million Mile drivers dating back to 1971.
