Lowell, Arkansas’ importance in the shipping industry goes beyond its honor as the headquarters of J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. Its northwestern location also means that it is a common stop for auto shipping companies like Budget Auto Shipping that are traveling through the area. In fact, Lowell is a common pass-through for all traffic traveling north on Interstate 540. I-540 terminates in Lowell before continuing north as Interstate 49B. But Lowell is not a large city, with a 2010 population of just over 7,000 permanent residents spread out through the 6.3 square mile city area.
In addition to being a popular destination for snowbirds that don’t want to experience the sometimes intense heat of Georgia and Florida, Lowell is a common end point for auto shippers because of employment changes. Both the J.B. Hunt Transport Services company and the local school district occasionally hire employees from other areas of the United States. Some of these employees benefit from Arkansas auto shipping services. While less common than in major metropolitan areas, some residents of Lowell also commute to work in neighboring cities like Bentonville, Springdale, and Rogers. Due to a lack of significant snow during the winter and a humid subtropical climate, there are few weather concerns for auto shippers traveling through the city.
