“Mass Movement presents an opportunity to expand our expertise in the final mile delivery of big and bulky products,” said John Roberts, president and CEO of J.B. Hunt. “The acquisition complements our current service and will enhance our ability to meet the growing demand of customers in the commercial health and fitness industry.”
Mass Movement has more than 20 years of experience providing logistics, delivery, assembly, and installation services for the commercial fitness industry and finished 2019 with $29 million of revenue. Founded by Dom Simonetti and Jim Sullivan in 1996, the company has delivered two million-plus pieces of equipment to more than 3,500 fitness centers throughout North America. Both founders will become employees of J.B. Hunt and will continue in leadership roles as the company expands its fitness equipment delivery business.
“Mass Movement is highly regarded among industry manufacturers and facility owners,” said Nick Hobbs, executive vice president and president of Dedicated Contract Services and Final Mile Services. “Its reputation and service quality align with ours, and we look forward to welcoming Mass Movement’s employees to the J.B. Hunt family.”
The acquisition is J.B. Hunt’s fourth since 2017 and will broaden the company’s industry-leading Final Mile Services, which operates one of the largest nationwide, commingled cross-dock operations. With 117 locations and over 3.4 million square feet of warehouse and facilities space, Final Mile has the ability to serve 100% of the contiguous United States. In 2019, J.B.
