Deliver to Win Truck Winner Gets His Birthday Wish

Landstar System, Inc. (NASDAQ:LSTR), a worldwide, asset-light provider of integrated transportation management solutions delivering safe, specialized transportation services, kicked off the year by giving away a truck on Jan. 24 during its BCO Appreciation Days event in Jacksonville. Landstar Business Capacity Owner (BCO) Rosemberg Villarreal of Grand Prairie, Texas, won a 2019 Peterbilt 579 UltraLoft, the first of two trucks Landstar will give away to its owner-operators in 2019.

“I received the call that I was a finalist for the giveaway on my birthday a few weeks ago,” said Villarreal. “My birthday wish, to win this truck, came true. I cannot thank Landstar enough for this gift.”

Villarreal was one of five finalists randomly selected from more than 217,000 contest entries.

The Landstar Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway was the highlight of Landstar’s BCO Appreciation Days event, a two-day event held each year to thank the independent owner-operators leased to Landstar for providing excellence in safety and customer service. Landstar business capacity owners (BCOs), the company’s term for independent truck owner-operators with exclusive lease agreements, earned entries to win the truck in various ways throughout the previous calendar year.

Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni hosted the Landstar Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway, along with representatives from sponsor Pilot/Flying J.

“Awarding BCOs like Rosemberg with a new truck is an honor. Each giveaway truck significantly and positively impacts an independent owner-operator’s life and business,” said Gattoni. “Landstar business capacity owners are small business owners who are committed to Landstar’s safety-first culture and excellence in customer service.”

Landstar’s next truck giveaway is scheduled for July in Savannah, Ga. during the annual BCO All-Star Celebration event where the company honors its Million Mile Safe Drivers and Roadstar® honorees - the company’s most elite independent professional owner-operators.
