    Default "Why UPS Wants YRC"

    Not my words but worth discussing...

    Yahoo! Message Boards - YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW) - why ups wants yrc

    "take it from a veteran in the ltl industry. ups wants to buy yrc. let me list the reasons: 1. they will never get a better deal.2. they will be be picking up 6 billion in revenue and taking out a competitor which will improve pricing. 3. they are running out of capacity on the ltl side. 4. they are 90% regional on their ltl side and it needs to be separated from their long haul 3-4 day freight which is 90% of yrc business. 5. they are behind market share of fdx freight. 6. if they can't take yrc out, they want to consolidate all the union carriers under the ups umbrella to get more leverage on the union so it will make them more competitive with fdx. 7. look for the teamsters to offer concessions to offer concessions to ups as a swap for buying yrc because teamsters have a big investment in this also, including a big ownership in yrc. these are a few of many, but you can bet on the union members passing any concessions and making company more profitable. why? because the only people left at yellow that havent been laid off are the oldies afraid of losing their retirement. they will work for minimum wage if necessary to save their retirement. all competitors can forget and pretty well have given up on putting them out of business, which is raising industry pricing. now that's some real info for you instead of a bunch of bull crap. have a nice day and a little bird told me their will be a "big announcement" soon."

    As I stated in my opening, for the sake of discussion.

    We all take everyone else's message boards with a grain of salt. We're all little talking avatars.

    Rumor has it Burlington Northern looking at YRCW. Could it be true or just a rumor??"

    Yahoo! Message Boards - YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW) - Rumor-Buyout

    "YRCW is actually a good buyout candidate as well if you took over the company and like gave them a zero interest rate loan you would have around 41 million a quarter in earnings allow them to pay down their debt clean their balance sheet up and you would own a very nice profitable company expand revenues reduce cost and yrcw could turn into a real cash machine.

    Old Dominion- a competitor that prepared well for the slowdown and has cash to burn right now.

    Union Pacific railroad

    UPS

    ABF"

    Yahoo! Message Boards - YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW) - YRC will be bought out very soon. only question by who?

    There's a handful of paid bashers there. Stocks are equally pumped and bashed. YRC seems to get punched more by the competition who wants to see us disappear. And try they have.

    Bite your tongue! I can't think of any good coming out of Old Dominion. They are probably the worst union haters out there.........Now if by some miracle UPS was to buy YRC or YRCW then I think that would be fabulous for you Teamsters.
