Landstar Owner Operator Wins Peterbilt 579 UltraLoft
Thursday, Mar 7 2019 Randall-Reilly Editor
Have you seen the news lately? There are some lucky truck drivers all across the nation who are getting free big rigs. One of these truckers is Rosemberg Villarreal. This truck driver works as an owner-operator for Landstar Systems out of Grand Prairie, Texas. Along with winning a brand-new semi truck to use for his trucking jobs, it was also the driver’s birthday wish. Find out more about what this truck driver did to deserve this new truck, which will help him excel as a Landstar Business Capacity Owner or BCO.
About Landstar Appreciation Days
Landstar Systems hosts an annual celebration of its employees called BCO Appreciation Days. This two-day long event is dedicated to showing Landstar owner-operators and other employees how much they mean to the carrier. As part of the grand event, one truck driver was selected at random from among 217,000 entries. That lucky trucker was Villarreal.
“I received the call that I was a finalist for the giveaway on my birthday a few weeks ago. My birthday wish, to win this truck, came true. I cannot thank Landstar enough for this gift.” The tractor he now owns is a 2019 Peterbilt 579 UltraLoft. The tractor comes with something super unique that is tailored toward the team truck driving market.
In the sleeper, there is a high-loft sleeper that offers a bunk sleeping position for two truck drivers. Instead of sharing your bed with your team driving mate, you now get your own sleeping space with the Model 579 UltraLoft. For team truck drivers, this could make all the difference in terms of long term job sustainability. Having your own personal space over the road, even in a team driving capacity, helps you achieve that work-life balance we hear so much about these days.
As for the new UltraLoft, what a wonderful birthday present! Jim Gattoni, serving as the president and CEO at Landstar, said, “Awarding BCOs like Rosemberg with a new truck is an honor. Each giveaway truck significantly and positively impacts an independent owner-operator’s life and business. Landstar business capacity owners are small business owners who are committed to Landstar’s safety-first culture and excellence in customer service.”
About the Truck Giveaway
This is only the first of a few free big rigs that will enter the trucking industry in 2019. Landstar will give away a second tractor to an owner-operator in the BCO program later this year. The giveaway will be held in Savannah, Georgia in July during the company’s BCO All-Star Celebration event. This event will showcase the best of the business with Roadstar and Million Mile Safe Drivers being honored at the fall meeting.
