Ruan Transport Corp. Closing Decatur, Indiana, Operations

Ruan Transport Corp. will shutter its Decatur, Indiana, operations on June 1, eliminating 58 jobs, the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reports. Ruan expects the closure to be permanent, according to a company filing.

The decision to close may have partly been spurred by the loss of a contract for transporting soybean oil for Bunge North America. A competitor underbid Ruan.

The closure will affect 15 non-union drivers, 33 union drivers, three union shop mechanics, two transportation supervisors, and five other workers. The Teamsters Local 414 union represents the unionized employees.
