When I decided to switch to pulling a VAN, I also decided to go 48 states, and I came to realize that I hated forced dispatch! So after much tire kicking I decided to go to Landstar (back then, it was Gemini – a company bought by Landstar). A bit later I moved to the sister company Ranger, and there I stayed (with a few name changes – Ranger Landstar, Landstar Ranger, and now just Landstar) until I got off the road.
Unlike other owner-operators, Landstar BCOs (Business Capacity Owners) receive a percentage of the revenue paid for each load they haul. With non-forced dispatch, Landstar BCOs enjoy the freedom to choose their own freight, run where they want to go, and when they want to go there. Landstar has thousands of loads to choose from at any given time with driving opportunities for van, flatbed, specialized freight and heavy haul. Drivers are given the tools, technology and training to move their independent business forward with minimal upfront costs.
