Midwestern-based intermodal trucking company formerly known as Universal Transportation Services has the new name of Calhoun Truck Lines effective June 1, 2012.
Calhoun Truck Lines is certified to run in all 48 states with a regional focus in MI, OH, IN, IL, WI, IN, MI, IA,MN, WI, ND, SD,NE, IA, MO, KS. It will operate as the same company, with the same ownership and same great service, just a different name. Company president Brent Bois explained the name change.
“We’ve decided to change our name to Calhoun Truck Lines due to some confusion in the marketplace between our company and a competitor with a similar name,” Bois remarked. “By updating our name and web site, Calhoun Truck Lines can now move forward with minimal customer confusion, and continue to provide the best service we can under a new identity. We are excited about our name change to Calhoun Truck Lines, and know that our customers will be pleased to work with us under the new name.”
The company’s current name, MC#, and SCAC code will remain in place during this transition to doing business as Calhoun Truck Lines. However, the SCAC (Standard Alpha Carrier Code) will change at some point in the middle of June. Customers and other connected parties will be informed of the new number at that time.
Calhoun Truck Lines was named in part after Calhoun Lake, the well-known lake in the Minneapolis, MN region. The company supplies intermodal trucking services throughout the Midwest from its four trucking operations in Detroit, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Omaha. Each operation is fully equipped to handle large intermodal trucking needs.
“Calhoun Truck Lines will continue to deliver great service that consistently meets its customers’ expectations,” continued company president Brent Bois. “Our responsibility continues with providing a professional working environment for our employees, and maintaining a safety conscious truck fleet to share the roads with fellow motorists.”
