The Perks of Leasing to Landstar

Although trucking across the country is not everyone’s dream job, it becomes quite an attractive career for those who enjoy travelling, driving, and not having a limit on how much they can earn.

This is what leasing out to a trucking company allows you to do. While you are running your own business and will need to put an investment into a trucking rig, you will also enjoy the flexibility and freedom that trucking brings you. If this sounds like a career path you’re interested in, then becoming an owner-operator could be a good fit for you.

Landstar is currently looking for commercially licensed drivers who are interested in leasing to them. Landstar offers several different types of positions including big rig trucking, expedited freight running and accepts all types of trailers. Here are just some of the perks of leasing to Landstar:

  • 24/7 access to freight loads on their freight load board. You can search via origin, destination, or even rate-per-mile.
  • You get load alerts when search criteria are matched to the types of jobs that you want. This way you get fast notifications when something becomes available to you, allowing you to choose whether to take on the freight or not.
  • You receive many different types of discounts on fuel and maintenance-related costs.
  • You can enjoy your home time whenever you need or want it.
  • There is no forced dispatch.
  • You get a percentage pay based on the freight. This ultimately allows you to earn as much or as little as you want, as you have the flexibility to run shipments as little or as much as you want.
