North American supply chain service provider, JB Hunt, has confirmed a leadership change for its Intermodal business unit.
Terry Matthews will retire from his current duties as Executive Vice President and President of Intermodal effective 1 April 2020.
Following Matthews' retirement, Darren Field will formally assume this role.
JB Hunt said this change is part of a methodical process that has been in development for the past several quarters.
“We believe this type of management succession with proper planning and ample time for the team to work together with new members is vital to a smooth and effective transition, as we have set up with Terry and Darren,” said JB Hunt President and CEO, John Roberts.
In May, JB Hunt introduced a trailer pool and drop-and-hook service.
