Chair Natalie Meyers says the economic challenges in the last decade have been a major factor in their decision to dismantle the company.
The shipping company’s headquarters are in located in Belleville but have operations here in Peterborough, along with locations in Ottawa, Brockville, Mississauga and Quebec.
At the Peterborough headquarters, some people have lost their jobs already.
