    Default YRC on the road back to basics

    Fourth try posting this. I'll fix soon a I'm able later in the day. It's almost 0100.

    YRC on the road back to basics - KansasCity.com
    With its finances under control again, YRC Worldwide Inc. has returned to “Freight 101” to win back customers, CEO James Welch said Friday.

    Welch, who this week completed 100 days on the job, outlined several changes the Overland Park-based trucking company embraced to repair the poor service and inefficient operations he found upon returning to the company. Welch had been head of the company’s national freight operation when he left in 2007.

    “We kind of lost our focus on Freight 101,” Welch said during a conference call with analysts after the trucker reported a $120 million loss in the third quarter, or nearly twice as much as it had a year earlier.To get back to basics, Welch has stripped decision making from the parent company, eliminating four senior management positions in the process, and charged the heads of its trucking subsidiaries with improving service and operating more efficiently.The parent company, he complained, was too involved in the subsidiaries’ business, created bottlenecks and kept the sales and operations sides from talking with each other. At the same time, employees in the field suffered from a lack of information and direction.“We stripped that holding company down to bare bones,” Welch said.YRC’s new structure gives authority and responsibility to the subsidiaries, each of which Welch said had its own geography, its own operating model and its own culture.Refocusing efforts even include changing the language of the company, preferring “freight” and “customers” to “logistics,” “transportation” and “consumers.”Jeff Rogers, who had steered YRC Worldwide’s large regional carrier Holland toward better performance, has become president of the company’s still troubled national trucking operation called YRC.Rogers said YRC had consolidated its network operations in Kansas City and was reviewing its terminal system for potential improvements.“We handle freight too many times,” Rogers said.

    Get back to basics??? Haven't we heard this speech before? What's the old saying, the more they try to change things the more they stay the same".

    The culture war is over. The man from Holland is going to let Holland call the shots at Holland.


    Rogers said YRC had consolidated its network operations in Kansas City and was reviewing its terminal system for potential improvements.“We handle freight too many times,” Rogers said.

    too many breakbulks? No breaks at Holland?

    It looks like the big problem is Glen Moore. The first 2 quarters of the year, they ran at 114. 3rd quarter they ran a 110. How in the hell does truckload lose money like that ?? No terminals. No termanal managers. No dock hands.

    It depends, sometimes the company will shift the freight to even out the numbers in different areas, where they would not need Glenmore in those certain areas.
