Re: East Penn Warehouse & Distribution Inc.
On April 15, 2003, the Bureau of Transportation and Safety instituted a Complaint against East Penn Warehouse & Distribution Inc., respondent, alleging failure to maintain evidence of bodily injury, property damage liability and cargo insurance on file with this Commission, a violation of the Public Utility Code at 66 Pa.C.S. § 512, 52 Pa. Code § 32.2(c), and 52 Pa. Code § 32.11(a), § 32.12(a) or § 32.13(a).
In accordance with 52 Pa. Code § 5.61, the Bureau of Transportation and Safety notified the Respondent that it must file an Answer to the Complaint within twenty days of the date of service. The Notice further specified that, if respondent failed to answer the Complaint within twenty days, the Bureau of Transportation and Safety would request the Commission issue an order cancelling respondent's Certificate of Public Convenience.
The Complaint was served on respondent on April 18, 2003. To date, more than twenty days later, respondent has failed to file an Answer to the Complaint.
Therefore, the allegations in the Complaint are deemed to be admitted. The Complaint is hereby sustained and the Certificate of Public Convenience, issued to respondent at A-00119224, is hereby cancelled.
Respondent is hereby notified to cease and desist from further violations of the Public Utility Code, 66 Pa.C.S. §§ 101, et seq. and the regulations of the Commission, 52 Pa. Code §§ 1.1, et seq. In view of the cancellation of respondent's Certificate of Public Convenience, it is specifically prohibited from rendering service as a common carrier by motor vehicle in intrastate commerce in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Should respondent wish to again begin transportation operations in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, respondent must file a new application for authority in order to obtain a Certificate of Public Convenience. The respondent must pay all outstanding assessments and fines before this Commission will act on an application for authority. Payment must be made by certified check or money order payable to the Pa. Public Utility Commission, P. O. Box 3265, Harrisburg, PA 17105-3265.
