Diversity and Inclusion

At our core, Landstar is about providing opportunity to people regardless of background. We do not tolerate racism or discriminatory behavior and strongly believe that diversity and inclusion make us stronger as a company.

Landstar’s network includes a tremendously diverse group of backgrounds and viewpoints. We strive to maintain an empowering platform for employees, agents, BCOs and other third party capacity providers that is fair and inclusive of these different backgrounds and viewpoints.

Our business model is built on helping diverse individual entrepreneurs – regardless of race, gender or background – become successful in our network. Our focus as a company is on safely moving freight and supporting the entrepreneurs in our network to be successful. We will continue to support diversity and inclusion within our business and our network.

Working Against Human Trafficking

Landstar is committed to working with industry groups and supply chain partners in the fight against human trafficking. We recognize that truckers are one of the first lines of defense to identify, report on and help prevent human trafficking. Orientation for all new BCOs at Landstar includes information on human trafficking. We are a corporate sponsor of Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) and have worked with the organization to educate and certify over 2,500 of our BCOs and employees on the proper actions when encountering potential trafficked victims. Representatives of TAT also are regularly invited to BCO safety meetings and other Landstar events.

Landstar has signed the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking (TLAHT) pledge that calls on leaders in the transportation industry to commit to employee education, raising public awareness and measuring the collective impact to end human trafficking.

Landstar also uses our own publications to bring attention to the fight against human trafficking. These are examples of articles that have appeared in Landstar’s “Road to Success®” magazine, which has a print run of 100,000 copies and is distributed to all of our independent agents and BCOs as well as to over 600 truck stops throughout the USA.

BCO All-Star Celebration & Appreciation Days

The annual Landstar BCO All-Star Celebration honors an accomplished group of independent owner-operators for their commitment to safety and service excellence. Eligible Landstar owner-operators are inducted into the newest class of Million Mile Safe Drivers, for reaching one, two, three, even four million miles without a preventable accident. Some are recognized as Roadstar® honorees, Landstar’s highest honor for truck owner-operators.

Landstar also holds appreciation events across the country exclusively for our network of independent owner-operators. These events include educational business sessions, expert guest speakers, safety education, panel discussions, food and prizes.

To reward our drivers and in show of appreciation, every year Landstar gives away two new trucks.

The other is given to one lucky owner-operator as part of the Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway.

BCO Benevolence Fund

Since the Landstar BCO Benevolence Fund was created in 2005, it has provided financial assistance to hundreds of BCOs in hardship situations. The fund was established to distribute financial assistance to qualified BCOs in emergency situations who do not have the assets to meet their existing financial obligations and/or immediate basic living expenses for their families. Landstar BCOs and truck operators employed by Landstar BCOs, and their immediate family members, are eligible to receive assistance from the fund. Contributions to the Benevolence Fund are collected throughout the year at Landstar’s various events. To find out if you qualify, to apply or to assist with Landstar’s Benevolence Fund email BCOfund@landstar.com or call 800-872-9541.
