Landstar Trucking is the largest heavy specialized and platform carrier in the U.S. and second largest in the world. Shipping over-sized, super-heavy freight requires specialized equipment, technical expertise, knowledge of routes, and government permit requirements. Landstar has a dedicated department trained in each aspect of these factors related to heavy specialized logistics. Super heavy, over-dimensional shipments usually involve high risk, high value, cargo.
Due to Landstar’s stellar reputation as a "safety before service" company, and its elite status of drivers, Landstar has the ability to offer excess-value insurance coverage well into the millions of dollars through Lloyds of London. Not all carriers can offer such high levels of insurance, which is why Landstar is the carrier of choice for so many companies hauling this type of cargo.
