Inspection Connection

Follow the signs to get your Landstar trailer inspected and get hooked up with prizes during the first-ever Landstar Inspection Connection! The month-long trailer inspection event kicks off on Safety Thursday Sept. 19, and continues through Safety Thursday on Oct. 17.

For a chance t o win more prizes from vendors including Great Dane, Hyundai, Fontaine, TA/Petro and Vanguard, make plans to have your inspection during Safety Thursday on September 19. That day approved third-party inspectors will conduct on-site trailer inspections at the following Landstar locations:

  • Fort Worth, Texas
  • Jefferson, Georgia
  • St. Augustine, Florida
  • Laredo, Texas

If you can’t make it on Safety Thursday Sept. 19, make plans to have your trailer inspected anytime during the month-long Inspection Connection event! During Inspection Connection, independent Landstar business capacity owners (BCOs) will automatically be entered to win weekly prizes by having 120-day trailer inspections completed on their Landstar-owned or -rented trailers at any Landstar approved inspection site.

Every eligible BCO who has an inspection complete at an approved Landstar inspection site, by Oct. 17, also will be entered for a chance to win one of two grand prizes – a ride aboard the Goodyear Blimp or a two night stay at a condo in Orlando, Florida!

And there’s more! Every BCO who gets their Landstar trailer inspected between Inspection Connection kick-off and the end of this year, will also earn an additional truck entry in the 2020 Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway! www.DeliverToWin.com.

*Inspection Connection weekly prize drawings will take place after each 7-day period during the month-long event, starting Sept. 19, 2019.

Landstar’s Trailer Inspection and Repair Initiative

It’s what people notice first – the Landstar® trailer with the blue star logo on the side. BCOs are proud to haul Landstar trailers, moving freight across North America. The Landstar P.R.I.D.E. initiative is one of the ways Landstar reminds and rewards independent contractor truck owner-operators leased to Landstar (or BCOs) to keep Landstar owned or rented equipment up to date on inspections and in good condition.

The P.R.I.D.E. initiative was created as a trailer maintenance incentive to encourage BCOs to keep all Landstar owned or rented trailers inspected and repaired.

Each month, BCOs who take Landstar equipment for the required 120-day inspection are automatically entered into a monthly drawing for a set of steer tires. At the end of each year, P.R.I.D.E. participants are entered into a grand prize drawing for a set of drive tires.

Thank you for helping keep Landstar’s fleet at the highest level of safety and performance through the Landstar P.R.I.D.E. initiative. Since the P.R.I.D.E. program’s inception in October 2014, Landstar® has awarded four sets of drive tires and 48 sets of steer tires.
