reported Minneapolis's Star-Tribune on Friday that LME Inc., a company with operations in the Midwest and Plains states, closed 30 terminals in some states.
The company leaves a message on its website, apologizing for the inconvenience.
The Herald on Friday attempted to reach the company's headquarters, but a call was missed. A subsequent visit to the Herald at the Grand Forks terminal has no result. The doors are locked on Friday afternoon.
Star-Tribune reported that owners of LME Inc. is in the process of paying a multimillion-dollar deal with Lakeview Motor Express workers, after a similar turnaround in 2016.

The message posted on the LME website states that an "alternative carrier" will fulfill the obligations of sending LME, but customers should expect delays and some customers at remote locations should expect "significant" delays.
