STATEMENT OF CLARIFICATION

Some of you may have read a recent article published on June 16, 2017 in USA Today entitled “Rigged”. The article, which can be found HERE examined the treatment of certain independent contractor trucking owner-operators in the Southern California drayage industry.

One of the companies mentioned in the article is a company called Total Transportation Services, based in Compton, California. By this statement, in order to avoid any possibility of confusion, we wish to clarify the fact that our company, Total Transportation & Distribution, Inc., has NOTHING whatsoever to do with Total Transportation Services. We are two completely unrelated, independent and separate companies, who simply happen to share similar names.

Total Transportation & Distribution, Inc. DOES NOT provide drayage services of the type mentioned in the USA Today article.   Our business provides LTL and FTL trucking services throughout Southern California and has been in business since 1989. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and business ethics and we show the utmost respect for our team of hard-working truck drivers.
