Free Holiday Meals for BCOs

2016-bco-xmas-meals

The Landstar tradition of offering complimentary holiday meals continues in hopes of making the season a little brighter for BCOs on the road and away from their families during this special time of year.

Once again, Landstar has teamed up with TravelCenters of America (TA) and Petro Stopping Centers (Petro) to offer complimentary meals on Thanksgiving day and Christmas day.

There are two ways for BCOs to receive a free holiday meal coupon:

  • UltraONE members can head to LandstarOnline.com where a link will be provided starting on November 1, 2016 to register their card for a Thanksgiving meal coupon. The coupon can be printed at a TA/Petro kiosk on Thanksgiving Day. A link to register for your Christmas meal coupons will be available starting December 1, 2016.
  • BCOs who are not an UltraONE, RoadKing or Passport card holder, can stop by any Landstar Orientation Center or contact LCAPP 1-800-531-5227 for their holiday meal ticket.

The deadline to log on and register for the meal coupon for Thanksgiving is 4 p.m. on November 22, 2016. The deadline to register for the Christmas meal coupon is 4 p.m. December 23, 2016. BCOs can print out their meal ticket on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day at any TA or Petro kiosk.

Coupons are valid for a meal up to $19 for an individual or up to $38 for team drivers and spouses. Meals are available at participating TA and Petro locations with full service restaurants.

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

J - BCO-appreciation-sign

We appreciate truck drivers 52 weeks a year, but during this year’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week from September 11-17, 2016, we’re showing some extra love to the professional drivers who help move America.

Landstar Business Capacity Owners (BCOs) – our term for independent owner-operators – play a huge role in transporting goods safely and on time. So, we ask that everyone join us in saying “thank you” to the men and women professional truck drivers who are on the roads each day.G - BCO-appreciation-Hipp

Attend our online celebration all week by following Landstar on Facebook and Twitter. We’ll have fun posts to share, prizes to win and photo tributes. Use the hashtag #ThankYouBCOs to participate in this online high-five with the Landstar family.

Also throughout the week, Landstar BCOs are invited to visit any of Landstar’s Orientation Centers for lunch. The free meal will be served at Noon, Monday, September 12 through Friday, September 16 at our Orientation Centers in: Fort Worth, Texas, Jefferson, Georgia, Indianapolis, Indiana, St. Augustine, Florida, Lewistown, Pennsylvania, Reno, Nevada, Rockford, Illinois and Burlington, Ontario.

rocktruckTo top off National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, BCOs are invited to join us at our service center in Rockford, Illinois for Landstar BCO Appreciation Days on Tuesday, September 13 and Wednesday, September 14. The event offers BCOs the chance to connect with Landstar executives, attend education and safety meetings, and network with fellow professional drivers. Also, one lucky BCO will drive off in a 2017 T680 Kenworth – the grand prize in the Landstar Truck Giveaway, powered by Comdata.

From everyone in the Landstar family … Thank You BCOs!
