Finding the best loads as an owner-operator can be difficult. Depending on the load you haul and how much it can make an impact on your career. Also, fully understanding the costs of fuel and equipment plays a big part in your success. With the internet, applications, and smartphones, finding and booking loads has become easier and a better option for owner-operators.

With thousands of loads to search from, you will have the freedom to run your business the way you want without missing important events in your personal life! The Landstar load board allows you to search through thousands of loads every day using the criteria most important to you. Finding freight has never been easier or faster.
Load Board Features
Maximize your revenue and minimize your headaches with the Landstar Load Board. This form of technology gives owner-operators everything you need to make the most out of every haul. Some features the Load Board offers include:
- Truck type
- Max/Min miles
- Number of stops
- Weight restrictions
Pre-Plan with Load Alerts
One of the great things about being a Landstar BCO is the ability to pre-plan your trips. Nobody wants to be looking for a load after their truckloads are empty. At the same time, it’s impossible to watch the load board while you’re 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. At the same time, you focus on operating your truck safely.
Load Alerts only take a few minutes to set up. Here’s how it works. You pick the freight criteria (rate, the point of origin, or destination) most important to you. Then, Load Alerts searches the load board matching your criteria. When it finds your load, Load Alerts contacts you by email and phone. It’s like having your own personal employee to find you the perfect load. Load Alerts has a “Follow Me” feature that resets your origin any time you are assigned to a load and then automatically starts searching outbound loads.
Live Load Board Demos Available
Landstar offers a private load board for owner-operators who lease on with us. Owner-operators can then have stability in booking freight directly from their load board and choose when to go home. Another advantage of leasing with Landstar and using the load board is the revenue potential that goes along with it. Landstar also offers different discounts on expenses for its owner-operators.
