    Yes. And they will give you the FULL, not give you must pay, but you will have all the indigenous equipment you need, including tarps, to get yourself on your way.

    All you need to do is go to the open deck class.

    Does Landstar sell any of the equipment at the class? Do they deduct it to start with or you got to pay to play lol

    Texas. Think you need to pay if you're brand new to the Star.

    It's a solid month from the time you fill out the application until you'll hit the class.

    No - you get to buy it all. Yourself.

    There was about 5 van guys that were thinking of switching to platform there the day I was.

    Their eyes glazed over and they didn’t finish the day.
     
    Diesel Dave and Dave_in_AZ Thank this.
