At Landstar, we take pride in delivering the safest, most reliable transportation services available.
Our expansive safety program includes strict operator qualification requirements,
dynamic orientation and training initiatives, and extensive customer and
public outreach programs. This results in virtually claim-free service
and an accident rate well below the industry average.
Customers are invited to participate in the companyís cooperative safety program - M.U.S.T. - Mutual Understanding of Safety Together. The M.U.S.T. program brings
customers together with Landstar representatives to deliver responsive,
hands-on solutions for each shipment.
At Landstar, we know education
is the key to safer highways. Our safety programs cover every aspect of
the business including equipment, business capacity owners and operators,
agents, employees, customers and the public at large. Through extensive
safety orientation programs, all Landstar business partners and employees
are made aware of the important role they play in keeping our roads safe.
Landstarís expansive outreach programs include monthly conference calls,
where company executives and staff join the business community, agents,
business capacity owners and operators and law enforcement representatives
in an open exchange of ideas on how to operate more safely.
Landstar works closely with the U.S. Department of Transportation to
increase public awareness about safely sharing the road with big trucks.
Landstar business capacity owners bring No-Zone trailers to schools, rest
stops, weigh stations and other public places to demonstrate how motorists
can make themselves more visible to professional truck operators.
Landstar's hallmark Safety Thursday
program keeps agents, business capacity owners, operators and employees aware
of specific issues. The third Thursday of each month is designated Safety Thursday with
various safety programs and activities scheduled across the country. The
process generates concrete ideas and solutions for enhancing safety procedures.
Safety is so important to Landstar that the company adheres to a corporate
philosophy of "safety before service." It's a philosophy that's made Landstar
an industry leader.
