Over the Road (OTR) Shipping
Over the Road (OTR) trucking is the backbone of America’s supply chain; chances are, if you need something transported from one end of the country to the other, OTR is the way you’ll most commonly get it done.
Traveling along the highways and interstates of North America, Over the Road drivers put in the days, and sometimes weeks, needed to haul freight from one end of the country to the other (and beyond).
How Jansson and Landstar have your Over the Road load covered
Whether you need a single tractor-trailer or a fleet of equipment to support a drop-and-hook operation, we’ve got you covered for the short or long haul.
We serve all of the major gateways and provide through-trailer service to Mexico and cross-border solutions to and from Canada.
As an independent agent of Landstar, we benefit from the myriad solutions our network provides. That includes access to 16,000 pieces of trailing equipment, including truckload vans from 53-foot trailers to box trucks and beyond.
We also work with 59,000 additional approved truckload capacity providers, so we can find the right combination of services and equipment that will best serve your shipment.
We’ve got through-trailer service to Mexico, as well as cross-border solutions into and out of Canada.
Transporting foodstuffs, medical supplies, or frozen goods? We can pair you with temperature-controlled trucks that will keep it stable and safe from dock to dock.
Need your product safely offloaded at the job site or dock? Landstar’s special commodity division offers blanket wrap and other services to keep your goods secure.
Not only that, we offer 24/7 support to make sure you know where your shipment is at all times, and keep you apprised of any changes in ETA or transport conditions. Rain or shine, your shipment is in good hands with Jansson and Landstar.
Hazardous materials (HAZMAT) are some of the most complicated products to ship. They require heaps of regulation and are often the most expensive to transport because of the sensitive nature of the materials involved.
Quite a few general commodity carriers no longer invest in the resources to haul hazmat, since the regulatory hurdles and liability insurance can be high. But for us, hazmat is a challenge we look forward to handling for our clients, taking the extra steps necessary to get your sensitive materials where they need to go quickly, effectively, and — most important of all — safely.
What hazmat does Jansson LLC specialize in shipping?
Our fleet of independent carriers and drivers can handle a wide variety of hazardous materials, including:
Class 3: Flammable liquids
Class 4: Flammable solids
Class 5: Oxidizers/organic peroxides
Class 8: Corrosives
Class 9: Miscellaneous hazardous materials
Landstar handles hazmat like no one else
As a Landstar agent, Jansson LLC benefits from its affiliation with one of the largest and safest truckload carriers in the nation. We enforce strict qualification and compliance requirements on its leased independent owner-operators, going above and beyond the requirements of most state and federal laws.
All of Landstar’s independent owner-operators are required to obtain and maintain hazmat certification.
What’s more, we consistently monitor regulatory changes so we can assist shippers with any hazmat questions they may have. We can figure out the right solution that is most compatible with your capacity and the commodities you’re transporting. Our drivers are also appropriately insured and covered for hazmat.
Do you have a hazmat shipment that needs a carrier?
Contact Jansson, LLC about your hazmat shipment, and we’ll bring all our resources to bear to get it to your destination. We understand the unique requirements of hazmat logistics, and can pair your product with the right driver.

Flatbed and Heavy Haul Freight
While many shipments can fit in a shipping container or truckload van, it can be a nightmare to handle anything bigger for many shippers. Luckily, we’ve got help for you in the form of flatbed, heavy haul, and other specialized transportation solutions.
Flatbed trucks carry an average bed length of 20 to 53 feet, which offers expanded carrying capacity beyond what a traditional dry van is capable of. They also offer more flexible loading and unloading options — you can load and offload cargo from the top and sides, without the need for a dock.
Whether you’re hauling a single machine or handling more complicated shipments, Jansson can provide the bespoke services you need to get from point A to B.
Most do you most commonly carry on a flatbed?
Flatbed trucks are frequently used to transport the following materials for a variety of industries, including:
Building and Construction Materials: Metal piping, I-beams, steel frames, concrete, etc.
Landscaping Materials: Mature trees, lumber, tools, and other equipment.
Baled Tires: For future use as road fill, erosion control, impact barriers, and others.
Equipment Hauling: Large, heavy equipment used by rangers, farmers, aerospace/aviation industries, and the military. Backhoes, cranes, tractors, and bobcats are just a few examples.
Whatever items you need to transport on a flatbed or other specialized form of transportation, we can get it done.
Among our flatbed and specialized freight solutions:
Heavy and specialized stepdecks
Lowboys with 40-80 ton capacity
As an independent agent of Landstar, Jansson specializes in heavy haul transportation for companies of every size and stripe. We have an entire department dedicated to all heavy haul shipments to determine the exact pricing and permits needed. In addition, we provide exemplary, 24/7 support for all heavy-haul questions and issues along the way.
When transporting shipments across the country, it’s important to have options in how they’re carried. That’s where intermodal shipping comes in — using rail to supplement over the road shipments to get your loads where they need to go, faster and safer.
With supply chains growing tighter than ever, intermodal provides organizations of all sizes more efficient options for transporting goods and materials. Product demands and surges can happen on a dime, and you want to be able to move quickly to keep up. Intermodal offers that flexibility and speed, so you can get that shipment across the country at speeds faster than a single driver can reach on their own.
Jansson’s second-to-none intermodal network
Landstar enjoys contracts with most major North American railroads and stack train operators, providing reliable door-to-door rail intermodal service that extends through the US, Canada, and Mexico.
As an independent agent of Landstar, Jansson benefits from Landstar’s vast network of intermodal dray carriers, which can get your international shipments off the dock and on a truck or train in no time. We’re able to pivot and adjust to any change in drayage conditions, keeping your load free of logistical hiccups.
Our third-party capacity providers also carry a wide array of equipment to suit your shipment’s specific needs, including:
Container on a flatcar (COFC)
Trailer on flatcar (TOFC)
Specialty rail cars
Whatever your specific intermodal needs, we can help you build out a shipment plan that will meet them, and manage your shipment all the way from dispatch to delivery. Keep track of your shipment with dynamic status reports, so you know where your load is at all times.
Whether your container is full or empty, Jansson’s got the tools to handle it in the most timely, space-optimized (and cost-effective) way possible.
Do you have a load you need shipped, but you don’t need an entire truck to do it? That’s where less-than-truckload (LTL) comes in.
For many shippers, it can feel inefficient (not to mention costly) to invest an entire full truck’s worth of space for cargo that won’t fill its capacity. With less than truckload (LTL) shipping, though, multiple shippers can share space on the same truck.
This way, you’re merely sharing a portion of trailer space with other companies who are also hauling freight on that same truck. And what’s more, you’re only paying for the portion of space you’re using. It’s especially useful for companies whose shipments aren’t as time-sensitive; it’ll get there no later than you need it, at extremely competitive pricing.
LTL shipping routes are perfect for businesses with freight shipments that are less than 15,000 pounds. Goods are consolidated onto large, crated, or palletized packages, organized so that freight doesn’t get damaged in transit.
Jansson are the masters of less than truckload booking
As an independent agent of Landstar, Jansson has direct access to dozens of industry-leading LTL capacity providers. Because of these relationships, we can get you rates for LTL shipments that you won’t get anywhere else. Unlike traditional LTL companies, we can act as your one-stop-shop for all of your capacity requirements.
Our network of third-party providers can get your load shipped on time and in the most cost-effective manner. We also coordinate shipments across Canada, Mexico, and the US, so your shipment can safely and effectively cross borders.
We make use of Landstar’s proprietary, industry-leading LTL platform which can give customers the ability to view LTL pricing and even book their own loads, all with Landstar discount pricing.

Shipping across international borders can be a hassle — shippers can be concerned about everything from cost and time efficiency to the security of their cargo. Getting products across the border to and from Mexico is hardly straightforward; if you’re not used to the process, it can lead to delays that will slow down your supply chain.
Luckily, Landstar has spent more than twenty years learning the ins and outs of cross-border freight, moving more than 170,000 loads a year through 11 gateways. If you need something hauled from one end of North America to the other, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better-prepared logistics company for your needs.
This includes Landstar’s US-Mexico Logistics Service Center in Laredo, Texas, which is a highly-secured, C-TPAT certified site with a 30-bay cross deck, and space for transloading. It’s even got a dedicated platform and heavy/specialized freight area with a custom 120-ton, standalone bridge crane to handle the most complicated transfers.
