Job Description Summary:

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 600 people and $718 million 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 our customers. The demand side represents the 30,000 partner transportation companies with whom we currently work. So, for example, consider a shipment of freight from Dallas, TX to Philadelphia, PA. Our customer has agreed to pay us $2,000 for the safe, on-time pick-up and delivery of the freight. So where would you come in?

Job Description:

As a Logistics Sales Coordinator, you aggressively market the J.B. Hunt brand to develop and secure an established carrier base to build capacity and adequate coverage according to the strategic plan. The position purchases transportation services by qualifying potential contractors and finalizing agreements. The position also solicits business from new and existing customers to build business volume according to the business plan. Freight booking & sales are required to meet margin and volume goals as outlined in the branch budget.

Responsibilities:

  • Market, service and promote JBHT's transportation products and services.
  • Develop and manage a network of outside carriers to move freight in the most profitable manner.

  • Ensure customer satisfaction and adequate service levels where freight is picked up and delivered using safe, reliable carriers.
  • Build freight volume from existing customers.
  • Establish and maintain a book of regular business.
  • Maintain and build effective relationships with customers and carriers.
  • Solicit new sales by developing leads and cold calling potential customers.
  • Position requires full time attendance

Qualifications:

  • Excellent analytical skills with the ability to manage multiple projects with a sense of urgency.
  • Must be willing to be on call, periodically, after normal business hours.
