We respect intellectual property rights, and will terminate users of password protected areas and deny access to others who, in our discretion, infringe the intellectual property rights of others. In addition, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate accepted technical measures used to identify and protect copyrighted works, provided these technical measures do not burden our hardware, software, or administrative systems.

We advise you not to rely solely upon the postings on this Web site, and you agree to contact the agents to obtain all load details before accepting the load. Landstar expressly disclaims any responsibility for inaccurate or incomplete information contained in the load postings.
