The trucking apocalypse is upon us and it has taken its latest victim. This time, it’s a 40-year-old carrier out of California. Timmerman Starlite Trucking, Inc. of Ceres, California announced that it would be shutting down, placing 30 employees into the unemployment line effective immediately. Ceres is a suburb of Modesto, California, a mid-sized city 100 miles east of San Francisco. Starlite had a fleet of 30 trucks, 150 trailers and 28 drivers, according to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration data.

We tried to provide a healthy work environment for our employees and give them the best wages and benefits we could,” Bell said. “But in the end, the rates that were available did not support the cost structure needed to compensate our employees appropriately.”
