January 10, 2003 Jacksonville, Florida - Landstar System, Inc., a safety first non-asset-based provider of transportation capacity, has named Dan Pflaume, a freight coordinator at the Rockford Service Center, Employee of the Month for January.
Pflaume's job requires a fine touch. He keeps Landstar's Business Capacity Owners - the independent contractors who lease their freight-hauling capability to Landstar - on a roll. Pflaume answers the phone nearly 100 times a day. Co-workers say he provides solutions to complex problems without blinking an eye. During a recent upgrade to Landstar's communications network, Pflaume kept BCOs in the loop and freight operations didn't skip a beat.
"Dan is a well-informed valuable resource," said Landstar President and COO Henry Gerkens. "His commitment and focus to outstanding performance demonstrates the key role our employees play in making Landstar a leader in the transportation industry."
Pflaume and wife Ginnie have five children and live in Durand, Illinois. A retired U.S. Army helicopter pilot, he likes to keep up with the latest military flying machines when he's not tooling around on his motorcycle.
