Kansas Trucking Company Ordered Out of Service

FMCSA reported it halted the company's operations after a review of the company’s operations uncovered extensive hours of service violations.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced Sept. 14 it has ordered Kansas City, Kansas-based trucking company HP Distribution LLP and an affiliated company, HP Distribution LLC, to immediately cease all transportation services because of "serious safety violations that posed an imminent hazard to public safety."

FMCSA reported it halted the company's operations after a review of the company’s operations uncovered extensive hours of service violations. "Commercial truck and bus companies that violate federal safety standards and jeopardize public safety will be shut down," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. "Safety is always our top priority."

FMCSA's announcement said its investigators found the company allowed drivers to falsify the number of hours they drove to conceal HOS violations. "This case sends a clear message that we will use every tool at our disposal to identify and remove from our roads unsafe truck and bus companies," said FMCSA Administrator Anne Ferro. "Our agency is committed to raising the bar for commercial vehicle and driver safety."
