Landstar defines a rookie as an independent agent who is new to the Landstar network, but not necessarily new to the transportation industry. LeVar Ramsay was an entrepreneur long before he opened the doors of his Landstar agency, Gorilla Freight, LLC, in Loganville, Georgia, in mid-March of 2022. Prior to becoming a Landstar agent, he owned a small trucking company, and was the founder and CEO of a telecommunications company. With his strong operations and sales background, he was able to generate nearly $6 million in Landstar revenue within his first year as a Landstar agent.
“LeVar’s entrepreneurial spirit, experience and professionalism as a new independent Landstar agent earned him the 2022 Rookie of the Year award,” said Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni. “In less than a year, LeVar’s freight agency has demonstrated outstanding growth and revenue performance.”
Recipients of the Rookie of the Year award must be part of the Landstar network for less than two years, demonstrate outstanding revenue performance, and encompass excellence in customer service. Nominees for the 2022 award opened an independent Landstar agency between July 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022.
