OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Transportation has ordered four suburban Kansas City trucking companies to stop operating after determining three of the companies were simply renamed versions of an unsafe company.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration said in a release Thursday that Olathe-based Royal Transport, Inc.; Nationwide, Inc.; Freight, Inc.; and Midwest A, Inc. have to stop interstate service immediately.

FMCSA says it found Nationwide Inc., Freight and Midwest A, were created in order to continue the business of Royal Transport after Royal received a conditional safety rating.

A man who answered the phone for Royal Transport, which had the same phone number as Nationwide Inc., and Freight Inc., declined to give his name or comment. A man who answered the phone at Midwest A hung up without answering questions.
