Owner-operators state that the mobile app makes it easier to search and book loads.
One benefit of being a Landstar owner-operator is the ability to pre-plan your trips out on the road. For owner-operators who do not have access to the load board find it overwhelming, not knowing where their next load is coming from. Also, not being able to pre-plan your trips often causes downtime. Downtime results in loss of revenue. However, one useful feature of the load board is to search and pre-plan your next load.
- It is hard to search for the next load when driving down the road. With Landstar, the load board offers owner-operators the feature of the Load Alerts. Load Alerts will search for available loads meeting your specific needs while you are driving. You will be notified when a load meeting your criteria is available.
- To set up the Landstar Load Board Load Alerts you will need to set your specific criteria within the app. Once you have saved your specific load searches, the Load Alerts will search for available loads near you. Once a load is matched with your criteria, you will be notified by either phone or email.
- At the same time, it is impossible to watch the load board while you are traveling down the road. Landstar has another great tool called Load Alerts that will watch the load board for you. Load Alerts is an exclusive feature that continually searches the load board for you while you focus on operating your truck safely.
- Load Alerts has another feature known as “Follow Me.” This feature will reset your beginning point every time you choose a load, then the function will begin looking for new outgoing loads. Think of it as your own personal employee or dispatcher. However, you are in control of your loads, instead of someone else.
