Isn't this the company Andre works or worked for?

Private-equity-owned trucking company had 135 drivers and 148 power units

LTL:

Less Than Truckload

Refers to carriers that make a lot of smaller pickups and deliveries for multiple customers as opposed to hauling one big load of freight for one customer. This type of hauling is normally done by companies with terminals scattered throughout the country where freight is sorted before being moved on to its destination.

LTL carriers include:

  • FedEx Freight
  • Con-way
  • YRC Freight
  • UPS
  • Old Dominion
  • Estes
  • Yellow-Roadway
  • ABF Freight
  • R+L Carrier

I was just going to post this as a continuing topic, one of many companies to come I'll bet.

These guys sent out a "Happy 4th" message to everyone, then closed shop the next day. Talk about a poor relationship! They're in trouble with the FEDS now, too. Didn't give an advanced warning with more than 50 employees as required by law.

I don't remember who Andrey was with. He disappeared around tax time back in April.

Yup. The company that owned them should get hit with a big fine. Hopefully some of that will find its way back to the employees.

I hope they take a big hit to the corporate bank account because that was a pee poor way to end things with their employees and their customers.

Hopefully being an LTL outfit, nobody was stranded somewhere on the road.

There is probably some funny business going on somewhere. Being owned by a holding company always sucks, those folks buy and sell companies alot though. They only care about their bottom line. Some actually buy companies with multiple subdivisions to break them up and sell off individually. I have been through that one personally.

I fear the longer our economy is going the present direction, more will follow. I remember some great advice I was given. If you structure yourself to make it through rough times you will prosper during the good times.

Yeah, I miss Andrey’s posts. He is a cool dude. Hope he wasn’t affected by that company going belly up.

I spent close to a decade working operations for a few different VT LTL terminals and nobody speaks well of them or the leadership.

The last time they were shut down I know a bunch of their drivers weren’t paid.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

When I worked for New England Motor Freight we had a similar situation. One of our CSRs came into the dispatch office laughing and said “did you guys see we are closing”… they told us through a gd email, just sent it out to every employee with an email. I was an ops supervisor at the time, had to call the TM who had left for the day, “hey Ben, you may want to come back to the terminal”. Pretty ****ty

Declared bankruptcy. I stayed for two weeks helping wind things down, if you didn’t stay until they released you then you lost your severance.
