Another California trucking company suddenly shuts down


A California carrier is reportedly shutting down for good, leaving dozens of truck drivers without jobs.

Yesterday multiple sources reported that Livermore, California, based trucking company Terrill Transportation is closing permanently, effective as of July 31, 2019.

A Google search of the company also turned up results indicating that the company had closed permanently.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)’s SAFER website, the company employed 36 truck drivers and operated 30 power units.

CDLLife has reached out to Terrill Transportation President Kevin Terrill for comment and this story will be updated if and when he responds.

This marks the seventh major trucking company closure of 2019 and the second California-based trucking company to shut down just this month after Ceres, California, based company Starlite Trucking closed on July 12. Starlite Trucking cited the cost of upgrading equipment along with state and federal regulations as the reasons behind the shut down

Other companies that have closed this year include Falcon Transport, LME, and NEMF.

This is a developing story.
