Landstar Names Johnson Jacksonville Service Center Employee of the Month


Jacksonville, Florida (NASDAQ-LSTR) Landstar System, Inc., a safety-first non-asset based provider of transportation capacity and logistics services, has named Cheryl Johnson October Employee of the Month for the company's Jacksonville, Florida, service center.


Johnson, a rate auditor in Landstar Carrier Group's Rating Services department, was nominated for taking on additional responsibility when a co-worker went on maternity leave.


Cheryl stepped up in a big way and enabled the department to continue working at a high level, said her supervisor, Landstar Carrier Services Rating Services Manager SaSonia Jones. When I came to revenue processing, she made quite an impression by helping me get up to speed. And when her co-workers ask for help, Cheryl always says yes.


Cheryl puts forth extraordinary effort to get the job done and displays this commitment on a daily basis, said Landstar President and CEO Henry Gerkens. We're fortunate to have people like her at Landstar.


Johnson joined Landstar in May 2000 and lives in Jacksonville. She and her husband, Larry, like to relax by watching their three children participate in sports activities.
