YRC unit changes name to better focus its mission, employees
YRC Inc. is changing its name to YRC Freight to better focus attention on its freight services and give employees from the merger of Yellow Corp. and Roadway Corp. a new name to rally behind.
The national unit of Overland Park-based YRC Worldwide Inc. announced the change Wednesday.
Jeff Rogers, the unit’s president, said in an interview that the move is a continuation of efforts to refocus YRC on the long-haul freight business.
The company specializes in less-than-truckload work, or combining shipments from several customers into a single truckload. YRC Freight is in the process of jettisoning its next-day service, leaving that business to regional sister brands New Penn, Reddaway and Holland. Full Story.......
