PUZZLING LOAD? LANDSTAR HAS SOLUTIONS.
A puzzle can simply be defined as a challenge – something that is designed to test ingenuity and knowledge. Every puzzle requires the solver to put the pieces together in a logical way, in order to arrive at the correct solution. It’s when the pieces of a logistics puzzle are extreme in size, the challenge requires the support of the Landstar network and the company’s unique ability to tailor a proportionate solution.
