Landstar is a company that hires owner operators. They are not there to hold your hand, but give you access to the resources available to run a profitable business if you need them. It was a step in between company driver and running my own numbers. After 2 years, I'm glad I chose them, and they offer the flexibility I need. Don't consider them if you don't know how to run a business, maintain equipment, abide by the standard industry regulations, have a bad driving record, or are looking for someone to blame for your own failures. If you have good personal skills and a desire to steer your own ship - from a solid financial stance, then they're a great fit.
