BCOs Maximize Opportunities
Searching through thousands of loads to put together a multileg run takes time that could be better spent on the road, generating more revenue. Now Landstar owner-operators can utilize the Landstar Maximizer™ mobile app to find the best combination of back-to-back loads to meet their needs for a multileg full-week run.
The new Landstar Maximizer search engine is a Landstar-exclusive technology in a convenient mobile app designed to help Landstar’s independent owner-operators spend less time searching for loads and expand their overall revenue opportunities. When owner-operators and drivers use the Landstar Maximizer app they:
- Reduce time spent finding loads
- Reduce down time used searching for the next load
- Reduce deadhead miles
- Optimize routes
- Maximize revenue opportunities
- Maximize home time
With the Landstar Maximizer mobile app, users choose the origin and ultimate destination, the start and end dates for the days of desired travel and the trailer type. Tap the ASK MAX™ button and, within seconds, the user is able to select one of hundreds of multileg combinations generated by the Landstar Maximizer app.
This new mobile app searches available loads from Landstar’s load board, combines that best matches to an owner-operators search criteria, then displays the overall revenue, distance, rate-per-mile and duration of the multileg routes.
The expanded beta version of the Landstar Maximizer app is available for download today from the Google Play Store for Android smartphone users or from Apple’s App Store for iPhone users.
The Landstar Maximizer app is available for Landstar business capacity owners (BCOs), the company’s term for independent owner-operators, with a current LandstarOnline username and password.
