The Landstar advantage is Freedom, Support, Savings & Appreciation. See the advantages below.
At Landstar, you’re in control. You are free to decide what to haul, and when and where you want to run. Choose from thousands of loads available every day. Whether you run solo or team, you are not alone in the Landstar system.
At Landstar, as an independent owner-operator, you will earn a share of the revenue for every load you haul. With the percentage pay model, as freight rates go up, so does your revenue.
Whether you specialize in van, flatbed, step deck, heavy/specialized, expedited, or temperature controlled, you’re headed toward freedom with Landstar.
Our programs are designed with one purpose in mind – to help you succeed.
Landstar Contractors’ Advantage Purchasing Program (LCAPP) offers substantial savings to our owner-operators from the day you lease on. Our owner-operators save daily on:
One way we say “thank you” to Landstar owner-operators is by hosting Landstar Appreciation Days. Several times a year, in various locations around the country, we invite Landstar owner-operators to join us for open discussions about the industry, safety meetings and networking with Landstar executives and fellow independent owner-operators. At least once a year there’s a two-day event which includes catered meals, contests and prizes. All Landstar owner-operators and their families are invited to attend that event and receive one night of free lodging.
We also host an annual All-Star Celebration for our Landstar Million Mile Safe Drivers and Landstar Roadstar® recipients. During the event, we celebrate the accomplishments of some of the safest operators in the industry.
On top of that, Landstar is the only company to give away two trucks each year! Every eligible Landstar owner-operator has a chance to win one of them, and the other truck is reserved for our Million Mile Safe Drivers.
Landstar also hosts hospitality areas at the trucking industry’s largest trade shows – the Mid-America Trucking Show and the Great American Trucking Show – where owner-operators leased to Landstar can enjoy catered lunches, receive operational updates and attend safety meetings.
Use our advanced technology to find a single run on the available loads mobile app or multiple runs available through the Landstar Maximizer® app. Either way, you can choose from thousands of available loads using freight criteria important to you: rate, point of origin or final destination.
Landstar’s Load Alerts® system finds freight for you and will automatically contact you via email or phone when an available load meets criteria you select.
Plus, as a Landstar owner-operator, you always get your fair percentage of every Landstar load you haul. With the percentage pay model, as rates go up, so does your revenue. Since you’re the one choosing the loads, you can always make sure you are maximizing your full earnings potential.
