Trucking services are being closed down. Arrow Trucking of Tulsa, OK has stopped its operations leaving quite a number of its truckers stranded all over the United States. A Maine trucking company is also closing and 100 jobs are lost. Carlen Transport is closing down because of the recession and according to Lenny Peters, its owner; it is no longer possible to keep the transport company going. The company has been fighting hard to tough it out but according to Peters, they were losing too much money.
The flatbed trucking company based in Maine has been hit hard by the current economic crisis and this is something that the lot of the US has been seeing the past few weeks.
An Atlanta based vehicle transport company also notified authorities of its mass layoff this 2010. Yet another 100 jobs will be lost because of Allied Systems Holdings Ltd.’s imminent shut down.
Meanwhile in Crestwood Industrial Park, Cardinal Logistics Management Corporation has sent a notification that it will be closing in early 2010 and will have to lay off over 50 people. The business is set to shut down because of an unexpected termination of contract that contributes to the company’s business. The notice was sent to the State of Pennsylvania’s Department of Labor and Industry just last week.
The economy sure is hitting the trucking industry quite hard and this is not good news to many truckers, even those who still have their jobs for fear that the trucking companies they work for might shut down as well.
