Please review and distribute as appropriate.
As a follow up to the communication on December 13, Central Freight Lines, who provides freight delivery services for the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) plate and supply delivery from Huntsville, closed their business. Central Freight announced it would stop picking up freight on December 13 and would deliver the freight already in its system by December 20, ceasing all operations afterward.
On December 15, our logistics company identified a new freight carrier, Southeastern Freight. Any outstanding orders impacted by Central Freight’s closure were collected by Southeastern Freight on Wednesday, December 15. It should be noted that Southeastern Freight may not offer the same customer-service options (i.e., inside delivery, etc.) in all markets. Inside delivery will be identified in advance on the bill of lading prior to shipment. If inside delivery is required and not denoted on the bill, please contact your Regional Service Center, so we can work with the freight company to cover the additional charges for the service.
Please be aware this situation continues to develop and additional changes to carriers may be necessary. We will continue to monitor the situation to ensure freight services return to normal, and all pending orders are successfully delivered.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Roland D. Luna, Sr., Director
