    You don’t have to rent a flat. If you don’t you just get the standard %65 percent. Rent and you get %73 and pay the rental charge. But the difference in that percentage is usually hundreds of dollars so I say it’s worth it to rent if you don’t have your own.

    pretty sure flatbeds get 75% .... didn't know they rented them that's not a bad deal should easy gross 4000 a week average with out running hard at all so that's an extra 400.00 so a lot better than 65%

    Will one year of experience at a flatbed company like Mavericks or TMC be enough to be a owner operator ?????

    Is landstar securement class excellent?

    nope just green stamps ....... they dont like change ............ I think I get mad at landstar about once a month which is pretty good ........ they pretty much leave you alone as long as you have legal logs ...... its hard to get ahold of them if you have any problems and seem to be on the agents side of things even when its obvious that they are at fault
