Landstar independent owner-operator Tony Green of Swayzee, Indiana, is the winner of the 2022 Landstar Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway. Green won a 2023 Volvo® VNL64T 860, including registration and fees, in the annual giveaway held on Sept. 29, 2022, in Carmel, Indiana.
Green was one of five finalists attending BCO Appreciation Days randomly selected from the contest’s pool of eligible business capacity owners (BCOs), Landstar’s term for leased owner-operators. The giveaway was held at the end of the two-day event, which featured networking opportunities, educational business development sessions, and news and updates from Landstar.
“Honestly, the last thing I expected when I came for the event was to be the winner of the truck,” said Green. “I was shocked when I was announced as a finalist. I was even more shocked and in disbelief when I won!”
The BCO has been leased to Landstar since 2009 and currently owns and operates a 2006 Peterbilt® 387 truck. After seeing his new metallic gray truck, he shared, “This new truck is going to make a huge difference for me. I’m sure it will be more efficient and comfortable. And I love this color! My current truck is about this color and so is my pickup truck. It was meant to be mine.”
Throughout the year, eligible Landstar owner-operators automatically earn entries in the Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway contest by delivering loads safely during the contest period. They also have opportunities to earn additional entries by attending safety meetings and participating on Landstar’s monthly Safety Thursday Conference Call. After the contest period ends, all entries are pooled and finalists are selected by a computerized random number generator. Finalists must be present at the giveaway to win.
“Landstar’s reputation as one of the safest, most secure and reliable transportation providers in the business is thanks to the efforts of Landstar owner-operators who are committed to our safety-first culture and deliver excellent customer service each day,” said Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni. “It’s an honor for us to provide such a life-changing opportunity to a BCO like Tony by giving away a new truck.”
“Winning this truck is so great for me, my business and my family. I’m very thankful to Landstar and I’m excited to get out on the road in it,” Green said.
Landstar provides eligible leased owner-operators the chance to win a brand-new truck twice a year. This year marks the 45th and 46th truck giveaways in the company’s history. Million Mile Safe Driver James Johnson won the Landstar All-Star Truck Giveaway in July.
