MINTO, N.D. — Altendorf Trucking received a Gold award by the Great West Casualty Company as part of its annual National Safety Awards program.

The program recognizes motor carriers with awards based on their year-end preventable crash results. Carriers can receive a platinum, gold, silver or participatory award by entering.

Via a Facebook post, the company announced the closure was “due to lack of staffing,” although the car washes at 1125 42nd St. South and 4701 S. Washington St. will remain open.

Altendorf Trucking, a family owned and operated company, was founded by Elmer Altendorf in 1948 when he went custom harvesting with two gas-powered trucks and one combine. In 1988, it expanded its operation to include an over the road division (Altendorf Express), and in 2001 it received its brokerage authority.

The company is now run by Marvin Altendorf and the Altendorf family.
