Arrow Trucking, which stranded hundreds of drivdrs in an abrupt shutdown Christmas week and filed for bankruptcy protection in the face of a series of lawsuits, relaunched its Web site with a call to hire drivers for tp to 42 cents per mile.
The Tulsa, Okla.-based company, which filed for bankruptcy protection Jan. 8, relaunched its Web site early this month, describing itself as “one of the country’s largest and most financially sound flatbed motor carriers.”
When Arrow shut down suddenly Dec. 22, it stranded as many as 1,000 truck drivers across the country. Local news reports indicate shippers and creditors are still searching for equipment and loads abandoned at truck stops and other sites when drivers ran out of fuel.
Citing safety concerns, federal regulators issued an order calling for Arrow to bring its abandoned trucks back, but it’s not clear if Arrow is looking for drivers to recover equipment and loads.
Calls to a number for Arrow’s human resources listed on the Web site received a busy signal.
