Boyd Logistics is one of two more trucking companies that closed their doors for business, due to the economic situation.  Many drivers for Boyd had been working for weeks without pay, and now after filing bankruptcy, there is very little chance that the drivers will ever receive that much needed paycheck.

The other one, Eagle Express Trucking, cited state of the national economy, slow consumer spending and stalled manufacturing activity as the prime reasons for shutting down their trucking business, founded in 1981.

    Possession is 9/10ths of the Law so try to retain the equipment until fully reimbursed or paid.

    Banks, bank and more banks will determine the outcome for all trucking schemes. Either one is on the list to receive or not. Wake up every one. We are living in post Roman times. Every thing business comes from the banking system – it is a buddy system. I am a trucker of 20 years – sad to see people at a keyboard have so much power to dictate one’s fate.
