    Default New YRC CEO to focus on fixing long-haul operations

    YRC National's network and operating culture to come under scrutiny.

    http://www.dcvelocity.com/articles/2.../?referrer=rss
    The new CEO of less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier YRC Worldwide Inc. said Friday he is focusing much of his early efforts on fixing the operating culture at the company's national LTL division, saying the network and the attitude supporting it "are not where we want it to be."

    In an Aug. 5 interview, James L. Welch said that "we still have work to do" at the division, known as YRC National. "We want to get rock-solid with our network and have a disciplined process for running the network." Welch, who started at YRC 13 days ago, did not provide specifics.

    Welch, 57, spent seven years as CEO of the former Yellow Transportation, which was later integrated with Roadway Express to form YRC National. Though Yellow acquired Roadway in 2003, the integration took six years to complete and was fraught with delays and cost overruns due to operational redundancies. The integration also led to customer defections as Yellow and Roadway customers—most of whom were satisfied with service levels of the respective carriers—experienced service problems with the integrated business.

    There is an "attitude" problem? Imagine that.

I have one delivery today that was due the 18th. My nextel has more pickups already that will even fit on a 53 but who flapping cares.

    Service problems have been an ongoing problem for years..but then no one gave a sheeit. Maybe Mr. Welch can fix it. It seems to be a staffing problem. They know how many inbound bills they're getting in. What is the problem with having the trailers loaded or at least have enough manpower on hand to get the loads out for delivery and cut the save-a-buck bs attitude

    Yep one terminal I go to alot has this problem. They want to unload 1700 bills Monday morning an have them outbound to district terminals for Monday delivery. The sheer stupidity in management really makes me wonder how some keep there jobs. Management continually ask for people to work the weekend. But everyone runs out of hours Monday- Friday, so weekend comes and I see more freight sitting than moving. Then we have CDO who thinks they know how Many trailers every terminal needs. Like a 3 stooges film at best.

    At least my paycheck clears the bank.

    at our barn our TM is about 140 miles away. the dispatcher/ operation girl is a peace of work. she don't show up till about 9:30, phone ringing off hook. the city drivers that have early runs has to write the pro numbers down and fax them to her so she can enter them on their trip. try to call in on radio or phone and hope it is answered. when you are on dock go into office for instructions and she is on phone with her friends and family. the dock guy says she is on phone about 75% of the time that way. hope someone will see this soon.

    Given Welsh's track record of wielding a heavy ax these worthless managers had better take notice. That goes for you Neil C. This clown is running the show on the city side and he did not have any idea we were out of power Monday? Then again it was up to Mike M. to have this power repaired and ready for the Monday onslaught. I guess it all worked out in the end as they had plenty of help that day on the dock working freight that was 72 hours old. The freight I delivered today was all late with the exception of one bill.

    We are fresh out of leadership mid level in this company. Rejects and misfits. Supreme losers that couldn't make it as Teamsters so they took a step backwards and turned to management. Losing job after job hoping to land on their knees in front of their next "opportunity." Now we are stuck with them. King Ken can't keep the fresh meat they just hired do to his sociapathic approach to managing. No one will work for that arsehole except the beaten down sheep that need that lousy job under his thumb.

    Maybe Welch will read this and do what should have been done during the integration and fire all these sorry SOB's that can't cut it. We don't need their sorry arses. The rank and file have kept this afloat the entire time. It sure as hell wasn't these number crunching geeks that mis manage this barn.
