Landstar’s BCO Lifetime Achievement Award

Landstar business capacity owner, Roadstar and Three Million Mile Safe Driver Conrad “Ray” Price says he was overwhelmed when he received the company’s BCO Lifetime Achievement Award.

“You know, this award, it makes all the hard work worth it. I was extremely surprised and humbled,” said Price.

The award was kept under wraps until Price’s name was revealed during Landstar’s 6th Annual BCO All-Star Celebration in July, which honored the best and safest Landstar owner-operators.

Recipients of this prestigious award must first have achieved Landstar Roadstar status and be at least a Two Million Mile Safe Driver. Recipients must also have consistently demonstrated professionalism by developing a positive reputation with regulatory and enforcement personnel, customers, agents and Landstar employees, as well as through industry recognition.

During the award presentation, Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni referred to Price as an “ambassador of safety.”

“The BCO Lifetime Achievement Award is the perfect way to honor Ray’s years of service and safe driving. This award is a testament to the values that guide Ray in both his personal and professional life,” said Gattoni.

Price, who lives in Cookeville, Tennessee with his wife Donna, leased on to Landstar in 1989 and has driven nearly 3.5 million safe miles with Landstar. In 2000, Price was named a One Million Mile Safe Driver, then in 2006 he achieved 2 million safe miles. In 2012, Price was named a Landstar Roadstar and, in 2013, he reached 3 million safe miles on the road with Landstar. Now that he’s received the Lifetime Achievement Award, Price says he has a new goal in mind and is setting the bar high for the future.

“I want to be the first Five Million Mile Safe Driver with Landstar,” says Price. “That’s my goal and I think I can do it.”
