Landstar's Growth Moderates as TL Spot Conditions Soften, but Firm Performing as Expected

Matthew Young, CFA Senior Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Matthew Young, CFA |

Landstar ranks among the largest third-party logistics providers in the highly fragmented $90 billion domestic asset-light truck brokerage space. Since Landstar doesn't own tractors, only a fleet of trailers, it has much lower operating leverage than pure asset-based truckload carriers. Thus, it enjoys a variable cost structure with relatively low capital intensity that generates solid capital returns--more than 30% on average over the past five years. Moreover, as one of the largest providers, Landstar has built a vast network of shippers, asset-based truckload carriers, and independent sales agents that support a wide economic moat, in our view.
