We can expect to see a press release shortly that BR Smith is filing for a CCAA.
 Will they go down????
Will alot of people and companies lose out on hard earned money that is owed to them you bet.

not sure how or if they're related but there was a Heinz company rig loading a 4 axle BR Smith wagon at Redpath on Wednesday, should have gone out and asked some questions i guess.

Titan trailer sales are supposed to be getting a few of their East aluminum 6 axles in the next month or so. I would hazard a guess that the steel division is done. Rumors have flown around for years so this isn't a huge surprise for anyone in the steel business.

They are supposed to be "reorganizing" so they could still be running some of their trucks.

CCAA is not always bankruptcy, often it is just a way to reorganize and get rid off of some debts.

I see Carrier Truck in Brantford has a line of their day cab steel haulers. All cleaned up with no logos on them. I've seen a few more of their 6 axles out and about with owner operators pulling them.
