    Are the drivers going to sell the furniture loads on Ebay?

    “UFI Transportation was founded in 2005 with 20 trucks and 50 trailers and grew to a fleet of about 200 trucks and 700 trailers, according to the company website. The company acquired Lane Furniture in 2017. Over the summer of 2022, UFI fired its CEO, CFO and executive vice president of sales and laid off about 300 workers.”

    Idk, It states right there in the article that they grew to have around 200 trucks and 700 trailers. How to 40 Drivers Dr. 200 trucks? Lol I must be missing something.

    Maybe they told their insurance carrier they had only 40 drivers ?
    Yeah , if I had a load of furniture, it would be on Craig’s or at a flea market this weekend , cause they ain’t ever gonna get their last paycheck and I’d bet the company has not been paying their share of Social security and federal
    Income tax either ,

    that’s the first thing the company owners steal when the money gets low. they keep deducting it from the employees paychecks but put it in their pocket instead of sending it to the fedgov .
     
    Lennythedriver Thanks this.

    Yeah and if you hit it just wrong, you could be out like two weeks worth of full driving to the sum of like $4000 in backpay they might owe you. So in an indirect way, you are a creditor at that point. In the abrupt way it which the business closed the doors, they’re not gonna know how much of what furniture probably was on what trailer. Make a pitstop to a large storage facility and unload yourself a couple sofas that will cover your lost wages. Lol because you’re right you’re not ever going to see those last paychecks. I noticed your benefits were canceled immediately as well, Including your health insurance.
