She was promoted to her current role as vice president of capacity qualifications in 2006. Edwards is a strong supporter of women in the transportation industry and is active in the national Women In Trucking initiative.
Landstar Vice President of Systems Integration Robert Sentgerath was honored with this year’s Landstar Outstanding Management Achievement Award. Sentgerath joined Landstar 20 years ago and, in 2016, began working on the initiative to provide the infrastructure, technology and staffing to modernize all of Landstar’s technology and processes. He is an instrumental part of the team designing and implementing Landstar’s new transportation management system (TMS) for its independent agents.
