J.B. Hunt Transport Services, North America’s fourth largest for-hire trucking company, announced Thursday that its subsidiary J.B.Hunt Mexico, S.C. has opened a sales branch in Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico, the first such office in the country for J.B. Hunt.
The new office will consolidate sales, operations, and customer support for intermodal and highway services into one centralized location in the country, J.B. Hunt says.
The fleet giant has operated in Mexico for more than 25 years and has a presence in Mexico City, Guadalajara, San Luis Potosi and Monterrey.
“We wanted to create something that was truly unique for Mexico, and this new office provides a hybrid of services that will help us better serve our customers and grow our client base,” said Shelley Simpson, executive vice president, chief commercial officer, and president of highway services at J.B. Hunt. “We’re excited to join the rapidly growing business community in Querétaro.”
