WOODWARD, Okla. – Beaver Express, an Oklahoma-based and family-owned trucking company with 77 year in business, has announced that it will cease operations as of Tuesday, March 24.

In a letter to its customers, Beaver Express President Mike Stone stated that as of Tuesday night the company will “stop making pick-ups” and is planning to execute an orderly transition to wind down operations. Stone wrote that the company’s goal is to have all freight delivered by the end of the day on Thursday.

In order to minimize the trickle-down effects of this transition, Stone said Old Dominion Freight Line will handle customers’ outbound shipments effective Wednesday, March 25. Old Dominion, however, is noted to not be acquiring “any assets or assuming any liabilities of Beaver Express.”

Old Dominion also offered a letter to Beaver Express’s customers outlining general pricing tariffs and contract pricing for Beaver Express’s customers. Both letters can be read here:
