Loss of DHL contract leads to New York carrier shut down
Story by: Brian Straight @ FreightWaves
New York Express and Logistics will shut down after losing a contract with DHL, the company said in a filing in New York state.
The company completed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act filing in New York, citing the loss of a contract with DHL as the reason for the shutdown of New York Express and Logistics in Latham, New York. In all, 48 employees will be affected as of March 31, 2020. The filing, entered into the New York WARN database Dec. 30, 2019, says locations in East Syracuse, Rochester and Depew, New York, will all be affected.
It is unclear from the WARN filing what services New York Express and Logistics provided DHL, and the company does not appear to have an active website.
New York Express and Logistics is a subsidiary of North East FreightWays, based in Hooksett, New Hampshire. North East does business under Land Air Express. Land Air is a large provider of less-than-truckload and truckload direct next day services in the Northeast.
Chris Kalavantis, operations manager, declined comment on the filing, referring all questions to North East FreightWays. The phone number for North East is managed by Land Air. A request for comment left with Bob McDermott, vice president of Land Air, was not returned by publication.
