COURTLAND, Minn. (KEYC) - Without any notice to customers or employees, LME trucking in Roseville unexpectedly shut its doors along with 30 delivery terminals in several states Thursday.
One of those delivery terminals was located in Courtland, leaving local employees with no job.
In a statement released on the company’s website this afternoon, LME says, ”We apologize for the inconvenience of the situation but effective July 12, 2019 LME Inc. will no longer be making pickups or deliveries of freight due to unforeseen circumstances and have ceased operations. Our plan is to utilize an alternate carrier to assist in getting all freight delivered and some staff are remaining to help with that. Freight handled by the alternative carrier will be billed by the alternative carrier but with your LME rates applied to the invoice. There will be some delays in the transits of these moves and they may be significantly delayed in some remote locations. LME Inc.”
