Lance Cole Named Landstar Agent Rookie of the Year
Landstar System, Inc. a worldwide, asset-light provider of integrated transportation management solutions delivering safe, specialized transportation services, named Landstar Agent Lance Cole as its 2020 Rookie of the Year. Landstar defines a rookie as an independent agent who is new to the Landstar network, but not necessarily new to the transportation industry.
“Lance’s entrepreneurial spirit, experience, professionalism and determination as a new independent Landstar agent earned him the 2020 Rookie of the Year Award,” said Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni. “In less than a year, Lance’s freight agency has demonstrated outstanding growth, revenue performance and customer service excellence.”
Cole’s career in transportation logistics began more than two decades ago as a sales and operations professional at an independent trucking company in Oklahoma. As a leader in his field, Cole was responsible for the planning and development of the trucking company’s flatbed division. Since joining the Landstar network in February 2020, Cole’s agency, OKiE Logistics LLC, based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has generated more than $3.4 million in Landstar revenue.
Landstar Rookie of the Year Award recipients must be part of Landstar for less than two years, demonstrate outstanding revenue performance, and encompass excellence in customer service. Nominees for the 2020 award opened an independent Landstar agency between July 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020.
The 2020 Landstar Rookie of the Year Award was announced during a private presentation to independent Landstar agents via a Cisco WebEx® conference call in April.
