Landstar Launches Owner-Operator Mobile App for Available Loads

| October 4, 2017

Available Loads

Owner-operators leased to Landstar now have access via their smart phones to thousands of available loads for Landstar at any given time, through the new Available Loads mobile app — one that enables owner-operators to rapidly search, save and book loads.

Designed with input from Landstar owner-operators, which the company calls business capacity owners (BCOs), the mobile app provides immediate access to the most commonly used features of Landstar’s online load board. Plus, there are new, user friendly functions designed specifically for smart phone use to create a more intuitive and efficient experience.

Approximately 70 percent of Landstar’s nearly 9,000 BCOs have downloaded the app in its beta and pre-launch phase since early August 2017.

“Every minute an owner-operator spends searching for a load is time away from him or her moving freight and making money, which is why we designed a mobile app to help owner-operators find loads more efficiently and effectively,” said Landstar Transportation Logistics Executive Vice President of Capacity Development Rocco Davanzo.

The mobile load board is easy to navigate, and a simple swipe to the left or right on a specific load lets the user hide or save the load. Tapping on the listed load’s blue phone icon makes an instant call to a Landstar agent to book available loads, saving even more time.

The app’s city, state and mile radius search parameters are designed to help owner-operators pinpoint the loads they are looking for. After booking available loads, the app allows users to work ahead by using the search “Loads at Destination” feature.
