HVH Transportation abruptly shuts down, leaving 300 truckers out of work


Denver, Colorado-based HVH Transportation has reportedly shut down, leaving more than 300 truck drivers out of work.

The first public report appeared early Tuesday evening on the CDLLife app (a social community and free navigation app for truck drivers), where an HVH driver stated that he was notified of the immediate shutdown by a company dispatcher.

According to the driver, the company abruptly “shut off all their fuel cards,” effectively leaving drivers stranded on the road. Other drivers have reported that their fuel cards are still working, however.

CDLLife was then able to verify similar claims from multiple HVH drivers and office staff, who also received notice on Tuesday evening.

The company has yet to release an official statement. The company’s website remains active.

Freightwaves has confirmed that company CEO John Kenneally has said that he is trying to help any drivers who are stranded to get back home. It isn’t clear exactly how many drivers might be stranded at this time.

According to DOT filings, HVH Transportation employed roughly 342 drivers and had more than 344 power units in its fleet. The company was founded in 1956 and provided various transportation service including, Truckload, Dedicated, and Regional.

So far in 2019, several trucking companies have closed abruptly, including Falcon TransportLME, and NEMF.

This is a breaking story and will be updated as more information is made available. Check back for updates.
