November 2, 2000 Jacksonville, FL - Landstar System Inc., a safety-first transportation and information services company, launched today a new customer-secured tracking and tracing system that provides customers with completely secured access to the information concerning their shipments.

In addition to the usual pickup and delivery data, Landstar's new tracking and tracing system provides users with a full description of each commodity, all stop-off and transfer points, and other details pertinent to each shipment.
