I was a owner operator for Atlas Van Lines for the last 31

Customer Question

I was a owner operator for Atlas Van Lines for the last 31 years . In June of this year a weights and measurement worker for NY state observed my truck getting a weight with a pickup on the scale behind the tractor trailer,he must have assumed i was cheating on the weight of a shippment.He contacted Atlas Van Lines and I was barred.The weights in question were never used in billig of any shippment,it was just a game we play with other drivers to say who has the highest weight.Atlas Van Lines and the weights and measures worker never ask me of my intentions.The weights and measures worker along with Atlas Van Lines assumed i was using this weight for a shippment.After 31 years and a impeccable safety and customer service rcord with Atlas Van Lines I was barred without any imput.I was a highly respected operator now my reputation has been trashed.Is there anything i could do
