All agents and capacity providers operating their businesses within the Landstar network are independent business owners. These entrepreneurs have the freedom to run their businesses their way, with the support of a reputable leader in the industry. This support provides them with limitless possibilities for business growth and the incentive to provide shippers with exceptional customer service. Our business model is effective because each party has a vested interest in delivering your freight safely, securely and on time.

Agents: Independent freight agents work directly with shippers to evaluate their transportation needs and develop the best solutions by using Landstar’s network of 85,600+ capacity providers. Although they operate under the Landstar umbrella, our sales agents are independent small-business owners who need to provide customers with superior service to be successful themselves.

Owner-Operators: When independent owner-operators lease to Landstar, they choose the freedom to run when and where they want to travel. By tapping into our load board and exclusive mobile apps, and capitalizing on the relationships they build with agents, owner-operators have the tools they need to succeed.
