    Default What if... YRC had looked into a Bailout (?)

    Parcel shipping/LTL: USPS market test could add a new player for LTL-like services - 4/2/2009 - Logistics Management

    Would there have been a chance for a Bailout of sorts...

    Had YRC looked into the possibilities of the US Postal service entering the LTL market – with an already established Major Truck Company?

    Take a look at this < Cash for Clunkers > offer for instance…

    Image the incentives they could have offered – through the utilization of YRC services… on behalf of the US Postal Service.

    Could have been a hell-of-a pilot program and major splash into the LTL Industry!

    If YRC had looked into bailout money, then they run the risk of the Federal govt. having a hand in the day to day operations. The governments intervention is why the banks are rushing to pay off the TARP loans. The banks don't want the Fed's poking around in their business.

    Also, my future sister-in-law works for the Post Office. They are waging a campaign against Fedex. Wherever they spot a Fedex truck @, they are instructed to right down the name of the business.

    Since DHL pulled out of the states...

    It only makes sense that the USPS would enter this market!

    According to this report:

    Privatization may solve the USPS's money problems - Aug. 3, 2009

    The USPS is loosing money because they have too many employees and too many facilities...

    Isn't UPS waging the same campaign?
