Horseshoe Express?
« on: August 19, 2010, 10:49:33 PM »
Are they still around? They are/were from Salt Lake City (I think) Utah. They used to have a website but they don't anymore. They are not on SAFER either.

How long ago did they go out of business? Was it recent?

I don't think it was too long ago, probably just a couple of years ago. I seem to recall seeing Horseshoe trucks around the first time Ryan took me around his area to look at trucks, and I think that was in 2007 or so.

The Horseshoe Express terminal is now occupied by Wanship (http://www.wanship.com/), and they've even kept the Horseshoe Express sign at the gate, which I thought was kind of cool. They share the yard with Double D Distributing, but the terminal building itself is only occupied by Wanship, I believe.

Were they white trucks with orange/copper fenders and trailer trim? There was a DCP out if so.

That's the one! They actually had two DCPs made - one 387 and one 379, and I have both of them.  8-)
