Landstar breaks ground on a 14-acre site in Crawfordsville, Indiana, for its newest field operations center.

Landstar System, Inc. recently announced the groundbreaking of its new field operations center in Crawfordsville, Indiana.

The center is being built on a 14-acre site west of Interstate 74 in Crawfordsville with Landstar’s nearly 10,000 independent leased owner-operators in mind. The new 7,000 square foot building will include classrooms, a conference room, and several convenient amenities for owner-operators leased to a Landstar motor carrier, such as a business center with free Wi-Fi, laundry facilities, showers, and a breakroom.

“Landstar maintains facilities focused on its leased owner-operators across the United States and in Canada,” said Rocco Davanzo, Landstar Transportation Logistics executive vice president of capacity development. “They serve as domicile locations and designated places for Landstar independent owner-operators to connect and network with each other, and to participate in continuous professional education to keep their businesses running smoothly.”

The Crawfordsville location is convenient for Landstar owner-operators headed to or from Indianapolis, and it has easy truck access from the main road. Landstar owner-operators who visit the new center also will have access to the facility’s secured parking lot, which has spaces for more than 100 trucks and 70 additional passenger vehicles.
