YRC Freight opens new terminal near Atlanta

YRC  Freight has opened a new freight terminal south of Atlanta, with 60 new employees.

The Overland Park, Kansas-based company announced the 75-door facility in in Conley, Georgia, in an Oct. 27 earnings call, according to Transport Topics.

The Conley, Georgia, freight terminal is the company’s 259th in the United States, which YRC said will benefit customers and the freight division. “This facility should allow us to strengthen our customer service in and around the congested Atlanta area in a cost-effective manner and as a good example of our ability to strategically grow and invest in our company when we identify the right opportunity,” said Darren Hawkins, YRC Freight president.
