Landstar facility in Carnesville, Georgia

Landstar Opens New Facility in Carnesville, Georgia

Landstar has announced the opening of its new 8,000 square foot facility in Carnesville, Georgia.

Newly built on 20 acres of property at Exit 160 off Interstate 85, this new Company-location was designed and built with Landstar’s nearly 10,000 independent owner-operators in mind. The new facility includes classrooms, a conference room and several convenient amenities for owner-operators leased to Landstar, such as a business center with free Wi-Fi, laundry, showers and breakrooms.

“The location has easy truck access for our owner-operators with multiple driver-focused businesses at the same exit in Carnesville,” said Rocco Davanzo, Landstar Transportation Logistics executive vice president of capacity development. “Landstar maintains facilities focused on its leased owner-operators across the United States and in Canada. These locations are designated places for independent owner-operators to connect with Landstar, network with others, and participate in continuous professional education to keep their businesses running smoothly.”

Landstar owner-operators who visit the new center also have access to the facility’s secured parking lot with more than 120 tractor-trailer combinations and 70 additional passenger vehicle spaces.
