ANOTHER substantial US trucker is out of business in this year's freight recession as Terrill Transportation Inc of Livermore, California, ceased operations, reports New York's FreightWaves

ANOTHER substantial US trucker is out of business in this year's freight recession as Terrill Transportation Inc of Livermore, California, ceased operations, reports New York's FreightWaves.

This is the seventh major closure in 2019. The others were NEMF, Falcon, Williams Trucking of Dothan, Alabama, Indiana-based AL?A Starlite Trucking and LME.



Manny Bhandal, president of Bhandal Bros, of Hollister, California, said three of his refrigerated trucks loaded with candy arrived at Terrill's warehousing and storage company early on July 30 and were turned away.



'We did get an email from one of their receiving clerks, basically apologizing that they couldn't receive our trucks because they were ceasing operations,' said Mr Bhandal.



He was surprised by the news that the 25-year operation was shutting its doors, as his trucks made weekly deliveries there. 'This year has been very tough on a lot of companies,' he said.



Kevin Terrill, president of Terrill Transportation, did not respond to FreightWaves' phone calls or email requests for comment about the closure.
