We are also one of the last remaining recruiting terminals left in the Landstar system. We are staffed 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. We feel it’s important to work the same hours as you do so we can assist you in after-hour loading issues, load board assistance, and just general questions about the industry.

Our offices located in Owosso, MI and Lincoln Park, MI give us great opportunity to a very diverse customer base. We specialize in the automotive, agricultural, retail and heavy machinery sectors. Our customers our big and small, but we pride ourselves on offering the same level of customer service to each one of them. In most cases, we are direct contacts to our customers, which allow us to communicate first hand information to our owner operators (BCO’s) so they have all the accurate details involving a shipment. These details give you the opportunity to make informed business decisions prior to accepting a shipment. The importance of knowing detailed information in today’s CSA conscious environment is crucial. With all the regulations, and scrutiny involved in today’s driving world, it’s the right of every owner operator to know accurate information so he or she is not potentially getting involved in a bad situation.
