    Yes the company was called Arkin Truck Lines. The original terminal was in Morocco, IN. They moved into Chicago in the 1960's near the RR Donnelly and Sons printing company. After many years at that location we moved to a new Facility in Addison, IL. We were Teamster's in two different locals in Chicago. The company closed sometime in the 1980's and we all lost our jobs.
