    Re: NLMI-Landstar

    Explains why I got a call from Landstar today offering me a dedicated run from Peoria, IL to oh somewhere. I wasn't interested so I told them to save their breath LOL. I am not hauling that low paying crap. But nice of them to offer anyway.

    Landstar purchase of NLM

    Here is a link discussing the original buyout. Somebody did mention some re-organization or something. Not sure how they could re-buy 'em though.

    No sense getting your tighty whiteies in a wad. Landstar mainly bought NLM for their computer system. They kept everything the same. Landstar does not give their drivers any special favors regarding NLM. If changes are coming I don't think it will effect you. Remember they are working with the big 3, so whatever happens it has to benefit the big 3 instead of you.

    LS/NLM does not decide who gets the load but the source does and it is a bit more complex than just the lowest bid.

    Very true but lately most shippers could care less who is hauling the freight. It's getting bad that's why I went in a direction I hate flatbeds but the money is solid.

    If Landstar takes loads away from the other carriers that are bidding on NLM, it would be a conflict of interest. They still award the load to the lowest bidder. I know, I deal with Landstar agents sometimes. NLM has a certain model and integrity that needs to be maintained in order to keep their customers and carriers happy.

    I dont know if its a conflict of interest, but Im concerned about the other carriers that pull from the nlm board and if they will still be able to.
