    Default YRC Exiting Next-Day Market

    Long-haul Trucker YRC to Exit Next-day Market | Journal of Commerce



    YRC Worldwide is proposing changes to its long-haul freight network that will speed shipments and take long-haul carrier YRC out of the next-day freight market.

    The change of operations, which must be approved by the Teamsters union, would be the most significant step yet in the restructuring of YRC launched last year by CEO James Welch and President Jeff Rogers.
    “We’ve got Holland, New Penn and Reddaway, the best next-day carriers in their footprint,” Rogers said. “We’re going to let them do what they do best.”

    Restructuring its long-haul network will help YRC load more freight direct to more points, reducing the potential for damage, building density and speeding shipments.

    Utilities driver jobs have ended at YRC..a gain for New Penn, Holland and Reddaway..end of line road-work has ended. YRC drivers take a whack as YRC returns to its roots with the 500-3500 mi service

    BIG savings fot the big BOSS man.

    Another way to scew the union by management.

    Don't get me wrong. but that statement sounds like your happy that YRC is going to put a lot of your Brother and Sister members out of work to give you more hrs. I just wanted to clear this up that you mis typed what you wanted to say.

    actually i think its a great move for YRC to do to stay in BUISNESS!! Isnt that why they bought Holland in the First place? Also i was laid off for 18 months in o8,09 so i get it, just glad i had a job to go back too.
