BUCHANAN (AP) – With the United States gearing up for a possible war against Iraq, this is a busy time for David Money, a freight hauler who says 80 percent of his business involves military equipment.
Money said moving a 176,000-pound electricity generator or a 139,000-pound Abrams tank across the country is no problem for his Buchanan-based company, in far southwestern Michigan about five miles from Indiana.
Money Freight Services, which was based in Battle Creek until two years ago, is an agent for Jacksonville, Fla.-based Landstar, one of the nation’s largest trucking companies.
“I’ve never turned down a load,” he told the South Bend (Ind.) Tribune for a story published yesterday. “I’ve never told someone I couldn’t get something done.”
