Nice to meet all of you, I'm from far away Kazakhstan, the other side of our planet
Read a lot about Landstar business model and still cannot understand one thing.
Why would a Landstar agent have long-term motivation to stay as agent? I understand that it can be a good start of business - financial support from Landstar, trainings, technology.
But an average Landstar agent (as it's said on their website) makes around 5 million $ of revenue annually. Why on earth a person who's able to make $5 million would give most of its comission to Landstar? Why wouldn't he/she go free as an independent broker/businees owner/etc.?
There are a lot of standard advantages for agents Landstar posts on their website and presentation materials - insurance, financing, technology, sales support etc. But in a nutshell - why agents continue working with Landstar? What is their core motivation or fear?
Thank you for your help!
