After 40 years in business, Ceres-based Timmerman Starlite Trucking, Inc. has closed. The trucking company specialized in transportation of livestock feed and other agricultural products. Company CEO Colby Bell said his staff of 30 employees were notified Friday and closure took effect immediately. The company provided hauling services to hundreds of clients in 11 Western states, Bell said, though its primary business was in California. The company has a fleet of 30 trucks plus equipment and trailers. Bell said a skeleton crew will remain on while the company’s remaining assets are sold over the next 30 to 60 days.
