LEBANON, Pa., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- (NASDAQ: YRCW) -- Employees at
New Penn terminals in four locations were recently honored for achieving new
safety milestones. The Milton, Pa., Cinnaminson, N.J., Altoona, Pa., and
Burlington, Vt. terminals have all passed the one year mark with perfect
safety records that hold true even today. This safety accomplishment was
achieved through the attentive safety focus of terminal employees, supported
and encouraged by New Penn's continuous internal safety initiatives and
training programs.

"Safety is primarily about constant awareness," said Tim Irish, Burlington,
Vt., Terminal Manager. "If you always remind employees about ways to work
safely, it helps to stay focused on that goal. We regularly show employees how
to avoid injuries, and encourage them to rethink any potentially dangerous
work habits. We all want to go home healthy and injury-free at the end of the

"You can't put a price on the safety, health, and well-being of our
employees," said Steve Gast, New Penn President. "These safety records are
their own rewards. We are incredibly happy to be celebrating them. For our
employees, their families, our customers, and the people who share the road
with us, safety is truly our first priority. The achievement these four
terminals have reached illustrates a deep commitment. I want to personally
thank our employees for their continued dedication to safety."

Some of the safety tools provided include educational videos, posters, and
regular safety meetings. Technology, including in-terminal weather and roadway
monitoring systems, also helped New Penn employees work more safely. These
safety successes were earned during a year that experienced blizzards,
hurricanes, flooding, and a great deal of severe weather in these regions
which make these safety records even more impressive.

The safety records include employees across all operations, including
dockworkers, drivers, office workers, and sales personnel. In recognition of
their achievement, terminal employees received commemorative jackets that
featured the safety record, terminal name and state.
