North Carolina-based FreightWorks shuttering operations

March 10, 2023

FreightWorks Transport, a nearly 200-truck hazmat, high-security and temperature-controlled freight hauler based in Rutherfordton, North Carolina, is officially closing its doors.

Jordan Kidd, FreightWorks’ director of business intelligence, marketing & IT, told CCJ on Wednesday that company owner Josh Farmer closed the company “in the most honorable way I’ve seen this happen in this industry,” with freight being delivered and employees getting paid.

“The owner has taken great time, effort and resources that he didn’t even have to make sure that everyone got home safely, fuel cards weren’t turned off before people got home, freight was all delivered – there’s no abandoned loads across the country – and everyone gets their last paycheck,” Kidd added.
