    Landstar is good because you can actually ride the seasons, containers, dry Van's ect

    What would you call it? If not partnering/ leasing on. Its all the same. I just look at it different. They provide services that support my company for 28% of whatever I bring in. I get at cost fuel discounts which saves me around 5k or more in fuel. I get free truck and trailer inspections. I can haul some many different types of freight all under landstar. I see can haul specialty loads that that earns a driver 2k in 1 day. Where else can you get all this. Please let me know. Lol
    Check this out sometimes brokers think that I am an approved carrier and they give me the the rate that a carrier would make. When I tell them that I am a BCO the rate goes up. My cut it pretty close to what a carrier would get but I dont have that high insurance.

    Is there anything else you can do with your truck? I have never in my life had luck with containers. I would look at anything else. I dunno how guys make it hauling cans.
