Mittie Owen

Mittie was born in Bakersfield, California before moving to Northwest Arkansas where she pursued her degree in Business Management and Transportation/Logistics at Northwest Arkansas Community College while working full time and starting a family of her own. She is a devoted Wife, Mother, Grandmother (Mimi) and Business Owner.

In 2004, Mittie started her career as a Check-Caller with JB Hunt Transport Services, Inc., in Lowell, Arkansas, where she quickly learned that transportation would be her forever home. Over the years, she has held several lead positions within the industry’s leading providers and has earned many accreditations along the way; Kaizen Leadership Training and Lean Six Sigma Certified to name a few.

Throughout her extensive career, Mittie has overseen and managed many programs, projects and teams in transportation such as Brokerage Operations, Technology Excellence, as well as Pricing and Financial Analysis Teams, all while conducting Lead Process and Development Workshops during many company restructures.

In 2017, Mittie decided it was time to put her expertise to the test and opened Owen Truck Lines, LLC., with the primary focus being Local Services in Northwest Arkansas. In early 2021, she decided to expand her fleet and started her Over-the-Road Logistics Team. When asked, Mittie will tell you that she prides herself on the relationships that she has been able to develop with both Customers and Carriers throughout her tenure, many of which she still maintains from her early days at JB Hunt.

On behalf of the Owen Truck Lines Team, it is an honor to have Mittie leading the way!
