    It could just be a smokescreen now that the eld mandate is in full effect. Maybe these companies judt cant "survive by the books".

    Could be. But I have seen hiring standards fall all across the industry, as well. Anything to save a buck because heavens forfend we should do anything to raise rates.
     
    misterG, Ffx95, bzinger and 2 others Thank this.

    That's possible but I would think it wouldn't have taken 2 years to show up.
     
    Ffx95 and Mountaintrucker4302 Thank this.

    I'm wondering if these companies that are closing have been legit W-2 companies or shady 1099 type operations?

    Nothing on the news about Paschall Truck Lines shutting down. That would be every bit as big as Celadon's death.
     
    misterG and bzinger Thank this.

    No, the major factor was that it was a half ***ed trucking company started by a former driver, I know the dude.
    He's getting old and no one has the wits to run it.
    Its been all but out of business for the last 3 years.
    Mort was a good guy and built a really decent regional trucking company. Just no one in the gene pool to make it work.
