Back in October we posted a blog post about Crete Carrier’s equipment. Today we’re sharing information about Hunt Transportation equipment. We are constantly updating our fleet to give you, our driver, peace of mind as well as the comfort you deserve. Our fleet is one of the newest in the industry with an average age of 2 years. All of our units are well maintained by our 16 in-house maintenance facilities nationwide as well as our numerous outside repair facility partners. This means less downtime and more miles for you as a driver.
We currently have International ProStars.
International ProStar Class:
- Engine: Cummins ISX – 435 hp
- Transmission: Eaton Fuller 10 speed
- Sleeper: Midroof
- Idle reduction technology

Driver Comfort and Safety
When we purchase new trucks, decisions are made with the driver’s safety and well being in mind. We also utilize the latest safety and performance technology. From the increased storage to the insulation packages, your safety and comfort is what’s important to us.
Tractors have come a long way from cab-over trucks without air ride seats or power steering. The trucks Hunt Transportation offers, have many of the driver comfort items you deserve. These trucks are designed to allow you to work a full day as well as get a full nights rest. With the addition of Idle Reduction Technology, your sleep is not interrupted from the starting and stopping of the truck engine or the noise an engine makes when running. Combine the Idle Reduction Technology with our insulation packages, and our drivers can enjoy a comfortable and quiet rest break.
Idle Reduction Technology
Since introducing idle reduction technology into our fleet many years ago we have integrated new technology on a regular basis. We currently have 75% of our fleet equipped with an APU, and plan to increase this number with new tractor purchases. The current models we operate are TriPak, ComfortPro, Espar, Nite, MaxPower and Parksmart.
With Safety being one of our key principles, On-Guard Technology is installed on many of our late model trucks. On-Guard gives you, a professional driver, an added level of support in mitigating accidents.
We utilize Qualcomm Satellite Communication in the majority of our fleet. This enables you as a professional driver to receive your trip information quickly and accurately. Additionally, it allows you to check your payroll.
At Hunt Transportation we realize we all have a responsibility to reduce the carbon footprint we have in our daily lives. Many of the small details of our trucks can reduce the amount of emissions and increase fuel economy. Better aerodynamics, Idle Reduction Technology, Cab Insulation, and improved tire technology allows our company to have one of the cleanest, most efficient fleets in the industry.
