ICS - The Time to ACT is Now!
How about putting your foot into the door of the fastest growing business unit in J.B. Hunt? Integrated Capacity Solutions (ICS), our Third Party Logistics & Brokerage business segment, has grown exponentially since its inception in 2007. From 18 people and $42 million in revenue to over 1000 people and $1 billion in revenue, we're not slowing down!
The three pillars of success for ICS are Accountability, Commitment, and Teamwork. We believe these three values distinguish us from our competitors.
As a brokerage, ICS is very familiar with supply and demand. And as with any brokerage, for ICS, there is supply on one side and demand on the other, with the broker making money on the margin in the middle. For ICS, the supply side represents the shipments of freight of its customers. The demand side represents the 30,000 partner transportation companies with whom it currently works. So, for example, consider a shipment of freight from Dallas, TX to Philadelphia, PA. The customer has agreed to pay ICS $2,000 for the safe, on-time pick-up and delivery of the freight. A Carrier Sales Coordinator will then coordinate that shipment of freight with another trucking company for a profitable amount, say $1,600. The difference between what ICS pays a carrier and what ICS receives from its customers is its profit. So where would you come in?
