A Texas-Sized Welcome!

More than 100 people turned out this month for a Texas-sized barbeque lunch and the formal grand opening of Landstar’s newest training and service center. The new facility, near the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, is now providing Landstar Business Capacity Owners a safe and comfortable home away from home.

The $6 million, 10-acre facility provides showers, free laundry equipment, a state-of-the-art truck-driving simulator, classrooms for safety, business and load securement training, as well as onsite staff support for all Landstar BCOs. The new site replaces a now-outgrown property in Grand Prairie which was Landstar’s most-visited field location.

Some specifics about the new location:

• Lounge/breakroom with multiple TVs, tables and chairs

• Free laundry facility with commercial-grade washers and dryers

• Business center with six computers for use by the BCOs, and

• Large, private shower rooms

• Completely paved, fenced and secure parking area

• 140 tractor-trailer parking spaces, plus 150 spaces for cars

• Easy access for trucks from Texas Highway 183, near Highway 360

• Three large classrooms furnished with the latest audio-visual equipment. The classrooms are separated by soundproof partitions that can be folded away to host larger meetings or other company events in a single room.


New Orientation Center – Grand Opening

New Landstar Orientation Center - TX
The new Landstar orientation center being built in Fort Worth, Texas

The Grand Opening! The walls are up, the roof has been raised and progress continues daily on the build out of the new Landstar orientation center in Ft. Worth, Texas, as the final stages of construction continue toward the July grand opening.

The new facility will be bigger and better than the current orientation center in Grand Prairie. In fact, the new center will be almost double the current center in square footage, with additional restrooms, computers, and more work and dining space. The new break room will be twice as large as the lunch room in the Grand Prairie center. Plus, there will be four showers instead of just one, and four washing machines and four dryers. The new parking lot will also be bigger and better – completely paved, fenced, lighted and will feature a keypad entry for security, similar to the orientation center in St. Augustine, Florida. There will be 140 tractor-trailer parking spaces at the Ft. Worth center, plus 150 spaces for cars.

The new site is just two miles from the current orientation center, but offers easier access for trucks from Texas Highway 183, near Highway 360 at 4700 Diplomacy Road, Ft. Worth, TX 76155.

Landstar BCOs and agents are invited to Join us on Thursday, July 10th for the grand opening – lunch will be served at 11:30am. See you there!
