    We are already moving jb hunt empty trailers for free when doing power only loads. Before picking up a power only load jb hunt demands owner operators pickup empty trailer hours away. And drop it where driver is picking up a loaded trailer all that for free. Same when trip is over and we do not want to take another cheap load from them. Jb requires an empty trailer to be delivered for free far away after a power only delivery. Not only is jb hunt tricking owner operators to work for free but jb rates are now between 1.30 to 1.40 per mile. Which will be less than a dollar if the free trailer moves are calculated into that. When on the other hand brokers are paying much more like 1.80 to 2.15 for power only loads. No free empty trailer moves like jb does. Better to start looking somewhere else like hire a dispacher or lease. Greedy ripoff jb hunt taking advantage of owner operators.

    Did you ever think to say no? We don't move your trailers for free.

    You do that for free?
    1.65/mile empty plus fsc with $100 minimum per move.
    I have moved 5 empty trailers to spot to load, you think their daycab local drivers work for free?

    Consider buying your own trailers and getting away from power only.
    Prices have come way down and there’s an abundance of them available now.

    Jb hunt does not have fsc or $100 dollar minimum trailer moves for owner operators with their own authority. I even spoke to a lady who is leased to jb hunt and she spoke to me about their cheap lease pay also.
    With jb hunt yes drivers are forced to pull free empty trailer moves for hours. Or else power only owner operators get no work. I only did a few moves I am done with jb hunt. Look at this screen shot of them paying 1.30 to 1.20 per mile. Keep in mind the bids mean nothing as jb hunt does not give what you bid. After a bid Jb hunt counter offers by 1 or 2 pennies. After the third counter offer jb hunt removes their penny counter offers. Screenshot_20240513-185141_Carrier 360.jpg

    $1.30 per mile to Texas lol, does JB hunt include the driver and fuel on top of that rate?

    I think it is because nobody at jb hunt explains nothing when signing up but caught off guard with ripoff surprises in the middle of the job. When owner operators book their first jb hunt load if it is an amazon load an empty trailer does not have to be taken. Most loads are not amazon. But empty free trailer does need to be moved after each run on amazon loads.
    On all other loads empty trailer needs to be moved for hours for free.
    After driver is near the facility to pickup their first non amazon power only load. Jb hunt calls driver and says an empty must be delivered to the shipper before picking up power only load from them. Jb hunt are tricky ripoffs
