Landstar System, Inc. is named for the first time to the Fortune 500 list of America’s largest corporations by revenue. With revenue of approximately $6.5 billion in fiscal year 2021, an annual record for the company, Landstar debuted at number 491 on the list.
“The consistent strength and depth of the Landstar network is what earned the Company this prestigious ranking,” said Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni. “The ability of our independent agents and employees to scale operations and adjust to the marketplace, the power of our unique capacity network to execute, and our innovative digital tools that facilitate efficiency in freight transportation management combined flawlessly to achieve remarkable performance.”
The ranking reflects Landstar’s record-setting growth in 2021, and is also a testament to the Company’s unique, entrepreneurial business model that has proven successful for decades.

“On behalf of Landstar’s leadership team, I congratulate everyone who has contributed to Landstar’s success. We thank all of our independent agencies, owner-operators leased to Landstar, approved third-party carriers, customers and employees who have helped us accomplish this milestone. Making the Fortune 500 was truly a team effort,” added Gattoni.
