YRC to provide home delivery

YRC Worldwide's national trucking company will offer home-delivery service for large items like furniture, TVs and exercise equipment.

YRC Inc. has launched YRC Residential Solutions, geared toward retailers needing shipping services for big items to homes or work locations.

YRC, the trucker created through the combination of Yellow Transportation and Roadway, is partnering on the service with STI, a residential delivery specialist.

YRC will pick up the shipments across its network and deliver the goods to an STI location. STI will then deliver the items in the final leg.

Mike Smid, YRC Inc. president, said the new service "helps our customers ultimately be more successful through time savings and an improved delivery experience for the end consumer."
