It is the end of the road for Richard­son Bros Trans­port


RE­SPECTED trans­port com­pany Richard­son Bros will wind up 30 years of cart­ing live­stock next month, send­ing all its trucks and crates to auc­tion with Ritchie Bros. Big Rigs read­ers were sad­dened by the an­nounce­ment made in early May. ■ Je­van Hart: It’s very sad when such a great com­pany like this closes up. I think the in­dus­try is go­ing back­wards with all these new laws and reg­u­la­tions so sad to see this hap­pen­ing. ■ Daren Heap: It’s even sad­der when an­other com­pany thinks they can re­place them and think­ing

they can do a bet­ter job. Good luck with your next busi­ness ad­ven­ture Richard­son Bros.

■ Jory Dun­shea: Very sad. Love watch­ing them as a kid com­ing into Sin­gle road house run­ning up and down the New Eng­land High­way.

■ David Sin­clair: Al­ways looked the goods one of the best live­stock out­fits go­ing.

■ Dave Brad­dock: It’s sad when a leader of the in­dus­try pulls out. ■ An­drew Gibbs: So sad to read an­other com­pany clos­ing up.

END OF AN ERA: Richard­son Bros Trans­port closes.
