New Field Operations
Center in Carnesville
Landstar® has opened a new 8,000 square foot facility in Carnesville, Georgia.
Newly built on 20 acres of property at Exit 160 off Interstate 85, the field operations center was built with Landstar’s nearly 10,000 independent owner-operators in mind. The new facility includes classrooms, a conference room and several convenient amenities for owner-operators leased to Landstar, such as a business center with free Wi-Fi, laundry, showers and breakrooms.
Landstar owner-operators who visit the new center will have access to the facility’s secured parking lot with spaces for more than 120 tractor- trailer combinations and 70 additional passenger vehicles.
“Wow. It’s more beautiful than I thought it would be,” said Landstar independent BCO Steve Wheeler when he saw his new Freightliner® Cascadia® 126 for the first time in Jacksonville, Florida.
In October, the 2020 Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway Winner Steve Wheeler and his wife, Chris, traveled from Greenville, North Carolina, to Landstar headquarters in Jacksonville to pick up Steve’s new truck.
When they arrived, the couple was greeted by Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni, who in true 2020 fashion, remained at a safe social distance to toss Steve the keys to his new truck.
Steve leased to Landstar as an independent owner- operator in 2014. You can read more about him
and the virtual giveaway in the second edition of Landstar’s Road to Success magazine.
