Company officials cite a mix of market conditions, insurance costs and aging ownership.
Albany, Georgia-based trucking company Commercial Shuttle Service (CSS) ceased operations in mid-December, citing a mix of market conditions, insurance costs and aging ownership.
The company had 55 total employees, including 41 drivers, and 41 power units, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s SAFER database.
“My dad, AJ Collins, the company’s CEO, he’s in his 80s, and business had gotten tough, so he decided to shut it down,” Brett Collins, CSS’ former vice president, told FreightWaves.
Commercial Shuttle Service was a dry van carrier that worked with shippers nationwide but operated primarily in the Southeast.
The family-owned company was established in 1981, operating as a tire lumper service for Bridgestone/Firestone with one truck as Collins Brothers, according to the company’s website.
