Jacksonville, Florida (NASDAQ-LSTR) Landstar System, Inc., a safety-first non-asset based provider of transportation capacity and logistics services, has named Brenda Lee and Stacy Carver the August Employees of the Month at the company’s service centers in Jacksonville, Florida, and Rockford, Illinois, respectively.
Lee, a platform trailer utilization coordinator in the Trailer Utilization department for the Landstar Carrier Group, joined the company in August of 2000. She was nominated by a fellow Carrier Group employee after she recently guided a new Business Capacity Owner (BCO) in the completion of a successful first load. BCO is Landstar’s term for the independent contractors who provide the company with transportation capacity under exclusive lease arrangements.
“Brenda went above and beyond so the new BCO’s first haul could go smoothly,” said Julie Wright, a customer service representative in Freight Operations for the Landstar Carrier Group. ”She helped steer the BCO clear of some potential pitfalls in the delivery of his first load for the company.”
Lee has called Jacksonville her home since 1980. She has a son age 14 and a daughter age 13. In her spare time, Lee enjoys spending time with friends and family.
Carver, a supervisor in the Cash Applications department, has been with the company since March of 1990. She was nominated by many Landstar Carrier Group employees in Accounts Receivable Services for her consistent willingness and ability to help others.
“I have worked with Stacy for several years and she has always been willing to help out, no matter how large or small the issue was,” said Liz Mayfield, a manager in Accounts Receivable Services for the Carrier Group. ”Stacy is a team player who makes all of our jobs easier.”
Carver, a native of the Rockford area, has been married to her husband, Lynn, for 13 years. She has a 17-year-old son and a 10-year-old daughter. In her spare time she enjoys bowling, fishing and spending time with her family.
Landstar President and CEO Henry Gerkens commended Lee and Carver on their winning attitudes.
“Brenda and Stacy are prime examples of employees who go above and beyond for the good of the company,” said Gerkens. “We are proud to have them on our team.”
