Less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier YRC Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:YRCW) has reorganized into four nationwide divisions and 17 operational areas that will support its terminal operations, with its YRC Freight national unit and its three regional operating units reporting to T.J. OíConnor, YRCís chief operating officer, according to a company document reviewed by FreightWaves.

The move is aimed at streamlining the parentís operational reporting structure, and there will be no change to the existing operating companies and brands, YRC CEO Darren D. Hawkins said in the memo. There had been rumors that such a move would be part of a larger strategy to consolidate all four operating companies into one brand doing business as YRC Freight.
