100% Freedom. 100% Non-forced Dispatch
Become Your Own Boss and Choose your Own Loads with Competitive Rates
With other trucking companies, you are told what you must haul, when to haul it, and how long you have to be out on the road on a week-to-week basis. However, this is not the case with Landstar. When leasing on with Landstar, you get to be your own boss. You run your business the way you wish. You determine which loads you haul, whether you pull your own trailer or a trailer provided by Landstar and you get to choose when you want to be home. Landstar is 100% Non-Forced Dispatch; we do not force loads on any driver. You are in control of your success.
Weekly settlements & fuel advances
Landstar owner-operators receive weekly percentage pay settlements delivered for one week ending approximately three days before the designated settlement day. In 2018, the average gross revenue per truck was $178,000.
Percentage pay vs. cents per mile
Instead of chasing miles, Landstar owner-operators receive 65% to 75% of each load they haul and can 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 an available load to haul. Since you will have access to multiple loads daily, there is less of a chance of having downtime. While you are unloading, our Load Board is behind the scenes searching for other loads near your location. You can accept or deny these loads depending on your specific needs. You can also save a search so you are notified of any loads that fit your specifications.
Landstar Savings Plus
The Landstar Savings Plus is a program for owner-operators that provides ways to reduce business costs and improve revenue. This Pay2Day card gives you savings on things such as tires, fuel, and more. The Landstar Savings Plus card is available to all owner-operators with no credit requirement or monthly fees.
