YRC Freight moving to smaller Toledo terminal
Transportation firm YRC Freight Inc. is moving from the former Roadway Express truck terminal at 6180 Hagman Rd. in Toledo to the former Yellow Transportation terminal at 4431 South Ave., the company said Monday. It has been trying to sell the Hagman Road terminal for about a year, although a price has not been disclosed.
YRC Freight, formed in 2003 through a merger of Yellow Transit and Roadway Express, said the move will not affect its Toledo-area operations and is being done to cut costs. Suzanne Dawson, a YRC Freight spokesman, said she could not say when the move will be completed.
The Hagman Road terminal, built in 1975, has 106,000 square feet and 204 docking bays. The South Avenue terminal, built in 1964, has 13,000 square feet and 41 bays.
