Comprehensive Logistics says 'vast majority' of Falcon drivers hired

Posted: Updated:
LIBERTY TWP, Ohio -

A company that shared the same Liberty Township address and was once linked to the now-closed Falcon Transport says it has hired the “vast majority” of Falcon's former drivers.

According to a news release from Comprehensive Logistics CEO Brad Constantini, his company managed to continue uninterrupted service to its customers in spite of the sudden shutdown of Falcon leaving 565 drivers without jobs.

“Over this past weekend, CLI was able to retain the vast majority of Falcon’s former drivers and immediately get them placed into Comprehensive Logistics positions,” Constantini said in a release. “There was absolutely no downtime or disruption of service to our customers.”

Although Constantini says Falcon is one of several companies that provided trucking services to Comprehensive Logistics, Falcon only provided service to one of its numerous warehouse locations.

Comprehensive and Falcon were related companies until late 2016 when Falcon was purchased by Los Angeles private equity firm CounterPoint Capital Partners.

Up until its closure on Saturday, Falcon's headquarters were located at 4944 Belmont Avenue, Liberty Township, which is the same address for the headquarters of Comprehensive Logistics.

Comprehensive provides logistics and assembly assistance to automotive, construction, mining, agriculture and consumer goods industries.

It has operations in more than 12 states according to the news release.

One former Falcon employee has filed a class-action lawsuit claiming her former employer failed to follow rules of the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, which requires that workers impacted by a mass layoff be given a 60-day notice.
