Episode 13: All About Landstar

With co-host Dan Babbit. I get a lot of questions about Landstar. Now that I've been here two years, I feel a lot more confident about answering them. There's also a lot of misinformation out there about Landstar that needs to addressed. Whether or not you lease to Landstar is your own decision. I just want to provide ACCURATE information so that you can make your best decision.

We discuss and describe the freight network at Landstar, how the billing and payment works, and the pro and cons (in our opinion) of being leased to Landstar versus another company or having your own authority.

One thing I always tell people is, "If you succeed at Landstar, it's your fault. If you fail at Landstar, it's your fault."

The Steve Harvey video I talked about where he says you need to jump in order to be successful.
