Supporting Landstar's Safety Culture
As Landstar’s “ambassadors of safety,” Landstar Safety Officers (LSOs) are the representatives from each independent agency at the forefront of Landstar’s customer safety initiatives. The LSO, who embraces all aspects of Landstar’s safety-first culture, is the customer’s point of contact at the independent Landstar agency for safety-related questions.
Supporting customers with Landstar’s safety efforts is what LSOs do best. Congratulations to the following Landstar Safety Officers recently recognized as LSOs of the Month.
November 2019 LSO of the Month
Landstar Safety Officer Lisa Nestor was named the November 2019 LSO of the Month. Nestor and her staff at Success Transportation have booked over 1.6 million BCO miles with no preventable accidents. They support Landstar’s safety culture by dialing into the Safety Thursday Conference Call and utilizing Landstar’s Mutual Understanding Safety Together or M.U.S.T. program. Nestor says, “real time visibility is mandatory” for all of her customers - to ensure freight visibility, the agency requires any driver hauling its customer’s freight to have GPS tracking capabilities. Congratulations Lisa and team!
