FMCSA Shuts Down AL Trucking Company

Ramona Roberts4 years ago

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) have ordered an immediate shutdown of Alabama-based trucking company MTI Transportation, LLC.  The company has been accused of allowing two other trucking companies, which had previously been shut down, to operate through them as “chameleon companies.”

Company was Operating Illegally

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, MTI was placed out of service after safety investigators discovered the company was transporting goods for the former BM&L Trucking and IDM Transportation Inc. Both BM&L Trucking and IDM Transportation were issued imminent hazard out-of-service orders for federal safety violations in vehicle maintenance and driver drug and alcohol testing compliance. In their safety audit, investigators discovered that:

  • Three of MTI’s drivers were previously employed by BM&L Trucking or IDM Transportation.
  • MTI was using two commercial vehicles still registered to BM&L Trucking or IDM Transportation.

“The practice of unsafe companies quickly reincarnating as chameleon companies to continue operations is unacceptable. Our agency is constantly doing everything within its current legal authority to keep one step ahead of these illegal actors,” said FMCSA Administrator Anne S. Ferro.
