August 16, 2001 Jacksonville, FL - (NASDAQ:LSTR) For the second consecutive year, Landstar Logistics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Landstar System, Inc., has been named Carrier of the Year by CONTECH Construction Products, Inc., Middletown, OH.
In 2000, and again in 2001, CONTECH selected Landstar Logistics out of 100 companies for the prestigious award for high standards, flexibility, safety, and service in delivering in and outbound products to plants across the nation. CONTECH, with more than 140 nationwide sales and manufacturing facilities, is a leader in engineered construction products for the civil construction market.

"Only a select group of our carriers will ever earn the highest award we can endow on a transportation provider," said Senften. "In CONTECH's history, Landstar Logistics has been the only carrier to receive the award twice, and the only carrier to exceed $2M in revenue in one fiscal year. We applaud your organization and credit our increased business to your efforts. Landstar Logistics epitomizes the word "partner" and CONTECH is increasingly dependent on your expertise. It can honestly be said that the entire Landstar Logistics organization is one of the leaders in the transportation industry."
