J.B. Hunt Lowers Emissions With Biogenic Fuels

J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. will focus on three key areas to reach its emission-reduction target that was announced in 2022.

The transportation company set a goal to reduce carbon emission intensity 32% by 2034 from a 2019 baseline and plans to incorporate alternative-powered equipment into its fleet, expand the use of biogenic fuels, and improve fuel economy based on diesel-powered mpg. 

In 2022, J.B. Hunt avoided an estimated 3.6 million metric tons of CO2e emissions by converting over-the-road loads to intermodal. The company also raised the usage of biogenic fuels by 6.9 million incremental gallons in company assets and incorporated its first company-owned Class 8 electric Freightliner eCascadia truck into operations.

The company published details in a report for its subsidiary J.B. Hunt Transport Inc. detailing the company’s progress toward environmental, social, and corporate governance performance.

“In 2022, we celebrated some incredible achievements by addressing challenges with energy and creativity while positioning our organization for long-term growth opportunities,” said John Roberts, CEO of J.B. Hunt, in a statement. “Looking ahead, we remain eager to follow through on our commitments and goals to deliver on our mission to create the most efficient transportation network in North America.”
