Monson Trucking to close; 200 jobs will end in August
Monson Trucking, based in Duluth, is shutting down operations for good by Aug. 31, putting 200 people out of work.
Many of its 100 employees in Duluth were told Wednesday in multiple meetings, said Michael Monson, one of the owners. They include truck drivers, mechanics, office staff and management.
"They looked pretty shocked," said Monson, acknowledging it was a tough day for everybody.
