OVERLAND PARK, Kan., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --YRC Freight, a subsidiary of
YRC Worldwide (NASDAQ: YRCW), moves forward with continuous improvements,
implementing a change in operations which will deliver even greater service
reliability and consistency across their network. The network changes enhance
operational efficiencies by increasing network density, reducing shipment
touches, and reducing the number of empty miles.
"Our primary goal is to provide our customers with consistent, reliable,
damage-free service," said Jeff Rogers, president of YRC Freight. "The change
in operations we are implementing today will give our customers an improved
experience when they ship with us."
A leader in North American LTL shipping, YRC Freight remains focused on
continuous improvement efforts. The results of this directive are visible in
its financial performance (three consecutive quarters of positive operating
income), improved key safety measures, increased speed in more than 24,000
lanes, and investments in sustainability programs, such as the partnership
with Clean Energy Fuels Corp. to test liquefied natural gas (LNG) trucks in
the Port of Long Beach and other surrounding areas.
