    New Penn had their own containers. Used them for Puerto Rico shipments.
    I wonder why YRC needs them ?

    Probably for rail use...more sturdy than piggybacking regular trailers. Just a thought.

    YRC Freight Expands Intermodal Operations with BNSF

    YRC Freight has announced that by the end of the year, YRC and BNSF Railway Company will have onboarded more than 600 branded intermodal containers to improve efficiency.

    The containers are part of YRC’s commitment to acquire 1,000 branded intermodal containers by the end of 2020, most of which will travel between Chicago and Southern California on BNSF’s network.

    “At YRC Freight, our intermodal commerce with BNSF is evolving. We are reinforcing our commitment to YRC Freight-branded containerized units for the present and the future,” said T.J. O’Connor, YRC Worldwide chief operating officer and YRC Freight president. “As intermodal usage continues to shift to containerized transport, YRC Freight will already be there.”

    Yes, I do.
    But they couldn't speak about it before the merger due to SEC laws on insider trading and takeovers.
