Landstar Express

I just recently read an article in Counterpunch:

Why Didn't the Busses Come — Bush-Linked Florida Company and the Katrina Evacuation Fiasco.

The article details how FEMA outsourced exclusive evacuation contracts via the FAA(?!?) to Landstar Express America, a freight shipping corporation who describes itself as "one of the nation's largest transportation services companies without owning a single truck". The article also implies that the Jeffrey Crowe, Landstar's Chairman, is a croney of the Bush brothers (W and Jeb).

Does anyone have any more information on these claims?
