California Carrier Abruptly Closes Leaving Dozens of Drivers Out of Work

Livermore, CA – The worsening freight recession, rate concessions, and the difficult operating environment for carriers in California has reportedly claimed another victim as Terrill Transportation abruptly closed down on Tuesday.

Reports surfaced late Tuesday that the Livermore, California-based trucking and warehousing company was turning away loaded trucks at its storage facility.

Transportation Nation Network (TNN) immediately reached out to the company for comment.

We spoke to a source who did not want to be quoted, but confirmed the company’s final day of operation is Wednesday, July 31.

 

A Google search indicates the company has permanently closed.

An anonymous source reportedly told Freightwaves that owner of Terrill Transportation, Kevin Terrill, blamed the closure on “rate concessions on both the trucking and warehousing side, driver wages being up and the tough environment to do business in California.”

According to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), Terrill Transportation operated 30 power units and employed 36 drivers.

Additionally, the company contracted 12 owner operators and hauled dry bulk commodities as well as refrigerated food and beverages.

According to its company website, which is still operational, the carrier says it operates in 48 States with a fleet of 75 trucks and more than 100 trailers.

 

The company also says it offers a “wide variety of specialized warehousing and handling services.”

Further, according to FMCSA data the company enjoyed vehicle and driver out of service percentages below industry averages.

This is the seventh major trucking closure in 2019.
