The company headquarters are in Jacksonville, Florida. Landstar has been in business since 1988. Landstar currently offers scholarships and has a nonprofit "benevolence fund" to assist Landstar operators.
Landstar includes nearly 9,000 owner operators in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The BCO's (Business Capacity Operators) are not forced dispatch like traditional trucking companies. Rather, they can choose their own loads. Landstar Agents find freight loads direct from shippers.
