    Default Dinosaur Trucking. How Old is YRC Fleet?

    With YRCW, a serious concern is their tractor fleet condition, as the company itself has mentioned the "aging fleet" issue more than once in its risk factors section of its public filings.

    NO NEW tractors or trailers were purchased in the last five years. So what is the result of that action?
    YRC Worldwide, Inc. (YRCW): YRC Worldwide Tractor Fleet Age: Dinosaur Trucking And The Results Of No CAPEX Spending - Seeking Alpha

    I saw this and found it interesting reading.

    To all of you at YRC.best of luck to you.
