100% Freedom. 100% Non-forced Dispatch
Become Your Own Boss and Choose your Own Loads with Competitive Rates
With other companies, you get told what you have to haul, when to haul it, and how long you have to be out on the road on a week-to-week basis. Not with Landstar. When choosing Landstar, you get to be your own boss. You run your business the way you wish. You get to determine which type of loads you want to haul when you are out on the road pulling your own trailer or a trailer provided by Landstar, and when you want to be home. Landstar does not force loads. We are 100% Non-Forced Dispatch. You are in control of your success. In 2018, the average gross revenue per truck was $178,000.
Weekly settlements & fuel advances
Landstar Owner operators receive weekly percentage pay settlements delivered over a period of one week ending approximately 3 days prior to the designated settlement day.
Percentage pay vs cents per mile
Rather than chasing miles, Landstar owner operators receive a 65 to 75% of each load they haul and have theability to maximize their earning potential since they choose their own loads.
100% of fuel surcharges and tarp fees
100% of fuel surcharges and tarp fees are passed onto Landstar owner operators
With Landstar’s Load Board, you never have to worry about not having a load to haul. Since you will have access to multiple loads a day, there is less chance of having downtime. While you are unloading, our Load Board is searching for other loads near your location. You can accept or deny loads depending on your specific needs. You can also save a search that way any loads you are notified of always fit your specifications.
