A motor carrier in Southern Virginia, FWC, shut down this week, ending a 30-year run as it struggled to rebuild business in the economic recovery.
The company, located near Lynchburg, Va., had 75 employees, according to local news reports, which said other carriers were already recruiting from FWC.
By The Numbers: Cass Freight Index.
Wayne Casalenuovo founded the company in 1980, just as federal trucking deregulation created opportunities for a nascent truckload industry.
Casalenuovo was not immediately available for comment.
The company had a fleet of 60 tractors and 210 trailers delivering dry and refrigerated goods throughout the U.S., its Web site said.
