National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Thank You BCOs!

We appreciate professional truck drivers all year, but during this year’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, from September 10-16, we’d like to show our gratitude to Landstar owner-operators by providing a free lunch.

Landstar business capacity owners (BCOs) – our term for independent truck owner-operators – are invited to visit any of Landstar’s orientation centers Monday, September 11 through Friday, September 15. The free lunch will be served at noon in each of these orientation centers: Fort Worth, TX, Jefferson, GA, Indianapolis, IN, Lewistown, PA, Sparks, NV, Rockford, IL and Burlington, ON.

Due to Hurricane Irma, the St. Augustine, FL orientation center will be closed Monday, September 11 and possibly Tuesday, September 12. To find out Tuesday if the St. Augustine center will be open and serving lunch, please call 800-872-8557 prior to arrival.

Landstar BCOs play an important role in transporting goods safely and on time the whole year through – so we’re spending National Truck Driver Appreciation Week paying tribute to the men and women who haul freight safely day in and day out.
