    Default YRC late freight

    Here we go again. Half of what I have delivered this week has been up to 5 business days late.


    YRC are we in the freight business or not?

    Was it JIT freight? Because, sometimes the customer will delay the shipment until warehouse has room for supplies.

    Yeah....this is such BS. All they are doing is running off freight to meet the man power they want.

    Then their obviously diverting the freight to the nonunion company for cheaper labor costs. You know the one I am referring too. The one they sold, and does a lot of freight forwarding, plus it has 50% of the distribution partner rights out of China as YRC has the other 50%. Remember this?

    Just give it all to them, now.

    has weather delayed some lanes??? I don't know if its me or not but I have noticed several times delivering a shipment to a customer. Only to find out that another shipment from the same shipper shipping the same product on the same date using a different carrier to see who has the quickest transit it times.

    I have seen Fed Ex, Conway show up at a dock after I deliver a shipment delivering the same stuff from the same shipper. This late freight issue isn't going to help us in gaining customers back.

    I have a catch phrase for Yellow management.

    "Fu-- the freight make them wait, that's what makes Yellow great.
