Bankruptcy

A California truck load carrier filed for bankruptcy, making it the second carrier in a week to file.

Ceres, California-based trucking company Mike Tamana Freight Lines filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy on February 8 in the Eastern District of California in Modesto, according to court documents.

It isn’t clear what the company’s plans are for the weeks and months to come, but the company’s Facebook page has been taken down. When CDLLife reached out to the company for comment about how it would proceed after the bankruptcy filing, Aman Tamana simply replied, “It’s Chapter 11.”

FMCSA records indicate that the company employs 100 truck drivers.

Court documents list the company’s assets at $1 million to $10 million.

On Monday, February 11, LTL carrier New England Motor Freight also announced that they would be filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and winding down operations.
