Landstar System, Inc. operates as an asset-light provider of integrated transportation management solutions worldwide. The company offers services to its customers across multiple transportation modes, with the ability to arrange for individual shipments of freight to enterprise-wide solutions to manage all of a customer’s transportation needs. The company provides services principally throughout the United States and to a lesser extent in Canada, and between the United States and Canada, Mexico and other countries worldwide. The company’s services are delivered through a network of independent commission sales agents and third party capacity providers linked together by a series of technological applications, which are provided and coordinated by the company. The company markets its integrated transportation management solutions primarily through independent commission sales agents and utilizes third party capacity providers to transport customers’ freight. The company’s independent commission sales agents enter into contractual arrangements with the company and are responsible for locating freight, making that freight available to its capacity providers and coordinating the transportation of the freight with customers and capacity providers. The company’s third party capacity providers consist of independent contractors who provide truck capacity to the company under exclusive lease arrangements (the ‘BCO Independent Contractors’), unrelated trucking companies who provide truck capacity to the company under non-exclusive contractual arrangements (the ‘Truck Brokerage Carriers’), air cargo carriers, ocean cargo carriers, and railroads. Segments The company has two segments, Transportation Logistics and Insurance. Transportation Logistics segment This segment provides a range of integrated transportation management solutions.
