J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Arkansas on August 10, 1961. The Company is a publicly held holding company that, together with its wholly owned subsidiaries, provides transportation services to a diverse group of customers throughout the continental United States, Canada and Mexico. It has arrangements with major North American rail carriers to transport freight in containers and trailers. It also provides customized freight movement, revenue equipment, labor, systems and delivery services that are tailored to meet individual customer's requirements and typically involve longer-term contracts. These arrangements are generally referred to as dedicated services and may include multiple pickups and drops, local and home deliveries, freight handling, specialized equipment and freight network design. It also provides integrated capacity and comprehensive transportation and logistics services and solutions by utilizing a network of thousands of reliable third-party carriers. While these unrelated outside carriers, at times, supplement its dry-van, full-load operations, they also provide flatbed, refrigerated, less-than-truckload and other specialized equipment, drivers and services. Its business operations are mainly organized through four distinct, but complementary, business segments. These segments include intermodal, dedicated contract services, full-load dry-van and integrated capacity solutions. Its business is somewhat seasonal, with slightly higher freight volumes typically experienced during August through early November. Its DCS segment is subject to less seasonal variation than its other segments. JBI Segment- The transportation service offerings of its JBI segment utilize arrangements with major North American rail carriers to provide intermodal freight solutions for its customers throughout the continental United States, Canada and Mexico. DCS Segment: It offers transportation services that generally are not provided by common truckload carriers or intermodal due to strict service requirements, specialized equipment, and intense driver and delivery personnel demands. JBT Segment: The service offering in this segment is full-load, dry-van freight, utilizing tractors operating over roads and highways. ICS Segment: It provides non-asset, asset-light, and transportation logistics solutions to customers through relationships with thousands of third-party carriers and integration with its owned equipment. It transport, or arrange for the transportation of, a wide range of freight, including general merchandise, specialty consumer items, appliances, forest and paper products, food and beverages, building materials, soaps and cosmetics, automotive parts, electronics, and chemicals. The freight transportation markets in which it operates are frequently referred to as highly fragmented and competitive. Its JBI segment competes with other intermodal marketing companies as well as other full-load c
