YRC Freight implements network optimization plan

YRC Freight 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.”

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.
