Landstar Awards Matt Miller with Outstanding Management Achievement

Landstar System, Inc. a worldwide, asset-light provider of integrated transportation management solutions delivering safe, specialized transportation services, presented Landstar Transportation Logistics Vice President of Trailer Management Matt Miller with the company’s Outstanding Management Achievement Award.

Traditionally presented during Landstar’s annual agent convention, this year Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni surprised Miller with the award during a presentation to independent Landstar agents via a Cisco WebEx® conference call.

“Matt Miller has played a critical role in developing the digital framework to enhance and automate company-controlled trailer assignment, utilization, tracking and maintenance processes,” said Gattoni. “At the beginning of Matt’s tenure, many of the trailer processes were manual. As the Landstar trailer count continued to grow, he proactively identified opportunities to build efficiencies to manage the growing fleet.”

Since assuming his role in 2015, Miller has led the effort to increase the Landstar trailer fleet from 9,800 trailers to more than 13,000 company-controlled trailers. Under his direction and leadership, Landstar’s trailer request process was digitized and includes a trailer yard management system at Landstar’s U.S.-Mexico Logistics Center in Laredo, Texas. Most recently, Miller and his staff launched a trailer pool management system, designed and developed in 2020 for independent Landstar agents to provide timely and accurate information on trailer locations and specifications.

The Landstar Outstanding Management Achievement Award honors a Landstar employee who places the successes of Landstar’s independent agents and business capacity owners (BCOs)* above all else. Award candidates are nominated by Landstar senior management based on their effective leadership, managerial skills, contributions to efficiency and productivity, and innovative and practical contributions toward Landstar’s mission. Nominees for the award must have at least five years of continuous employment at a managerial level.

*Business capacity owner (BCO) is the term Landstar uses for independent owner-operators under exclusive lease agreements.
