For tractor-trailer, expedited, and hotshot owner-operators, the minimum requirements are:
Trucks and trailers that pass a Level One DOT inspection through an approved Landstar inspection facility may be leased on. Tractor must contain a certified sleeper berth and must also be capable of functioning with an Electronic Logging Device (ELD). BCO candidates residing in California must be CARB compliant. Find CARB information at arb.ca.gov/dieseltruck.
Yes, we have a variety of loads including team freight. Currently, we have team opportunities with van (van, dedicated van and temperature-controlled van), flatbed, step deck, heavy specialized, expedited (white-glove, pharmaceutical, automotive and AA&E), and refrigerated.
The term Business Capacity Owner (BCO) better reflects the skill set of Landstar’s independent owner-operators. Owner-operators have dispatchers. But BCOs are dispatchers. You select the freight. You set your schedule. You decide on home time.
At Landstar, owner-operators are compensated based on a fixed percentage of the revenue generated from the freight they haul. As rates increase, so does your compensation.
Landstar’s diverse customer base allows our owner-operators to choose the type of load that works best for their businesses. Register for the Landstar Load Board demonstration and see how the freight we have available compares to the freight you have access to now. A free demonstration webinar is held daily Tuesday – Friday.
Solid, long-term relationships are the backbone of Landstar’s success story. We’ll provide you with the resources necessary to succeed, starting from your first day in orientation to the tools to plan ahead and book your next load to a complimentary ocean cruise as part of Landstar’s extensive safety awards program.
Through the Landstar Advantage Purchasing Program (LCAPP), Landstar BCOs saved more than $47 million on fuel purchases in 2019.
Landstar passes back 100% of all billed fuel surcharges to BCOs. In 2019, that number exceeded $200 million.
Yes, tractors must be capable of functioning with Landstar-approved Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs).
