Best job I ever had. 037
I used to see a lot of St. Johnsbury trucks when I lived in NY. I remember them closing the doors, but don't recall why. What ever happened to them?
Mismanagement, junk bonds, bankruptcy.
the same thing that happened to TOO many GOOD jobs
Including my old LTL job
It's always a shame to see a good company go down the tubes due to mismanagement. Happens far too often.
I worked for Standard Trucking, we inter-lined with St.Johnsbury, and closed down right behind them. Was the best LTL job I ever had. I sure miss those days.
A shame that these old trucking companies aren't here anymore.talk about job losses to overseas companies.

I worked for St. J for 20 yrs. I was #10 of 75 in Lincoln, RI. The reason why we went out is like this, in the late 80's Oil companies had more money than they could spend so they wanted to diversify, they bought a few trucking Co. as did Sun Oil ( Sunoco) The St J sold out then St J management decided to buy us back. They took out a loan interest only for 5 yrs.(stupid idea). When the five yrs up the principle was due and could not pay up, so close it up. Taking the 9% cut in pay was the beginning of the ice burg. Then the big truck sell off. I never saw it my self(denial) I had just driven to MO. to see my sister, and returning not seeing hardly any St J trucks even in NY/NJ area. The following day Monday morn found out on the radio news that St J with 4500 drivers out of a job.
great job.... 02 pennsauken and 067 King of prussia.
I loved working at 02 Millie was a sweetheart but then there was Mike Mcmahon after Ed left and it was downhill after that.

Ok thanks, I worked at lincoln 021? from 1990 thru 1993 sandwiched between 13 years at holmes trans an 16 years at new penn.
I forget a lot of the terminal codes.
02 and 067
02 was pennsauken and 067 was kop right, when they closed kop we ran a lot of loads into pennsauken.
It was not a happy time down in the philly area.
Yup your right on the locations. It was a great company most of us would have been close to the top or retired by now.
I also worked for standard trucking and it was a great job.
My dad and uncle worked for Standard back in the day..Greensboro.
I was in Darlington.
