SKYCAM SCORES
A WIN WITH LANDSTAR SERVICES
2017 was a record setting year for Landstar. In the fourth quarter we achieved record quarterly revenue, gross pro t, operating income, diluted earnings per share and truck loadings.
Accomplishments at this level take the entire network of employees, independent sales agents, business capacity owners and third-party capacity providers working toward the same goal of providing customers excellence in safe, reliable transportation logistics services.
That’s what this issue of The Road to Success® magazine is about – how we work together to create the best solutions for our customers.
On page 22, Landstar agents share how they work with the company’s heavy/specialized department to provide shippers  rst-rate service. As the agents tell it, it’s that corporate support that helps them meet customer needs and continuously grow their agencies.
The story, on page 39, focuses on how through Mutual Understanding of Safety Together or M.U.S.T., Landstar and Landstar agents help customers to re ne safety practices and prep for changing regulations that can a ect the loading process, available capacity and, ultimately, productivity.
The cover story on page 24 about value-added service to SkyCam and “What’s in the Van?,” on page 27, o er inside looks at how Landstar owner-operators and agents go the extra mile for customers on the most common types of loads – the van haul.
There are countless examples of the people who make up the Landstar system coming together to achieve transportation management service excellence. We hope these stories heighten your understanding of what we do for one another to provide excellence for our customers every day.
