It is now estimated to be worth between 1.5 and 3 billion dollars. CenTra, Inc., is also the controlling body of Central Transport International, an LTL trucking carrier. Moroun also has a controlling stake in Universal Truckload Services Inc., which is in itself a holding company for several over-the-road truck lines (Universal Am-Can Ltd., Mason Dixon Lines, Economy Transport, etc.)
