YRCW: A Year in Headlines

The last year has been nothing if not volatile for trucking giant YRC Worldwide (YRCW). The headlines tell a story of a company battling for its survival, pulling out every tool it can find. In addition to making staff cuts, the company sold and leased back property, negotiated two sets of wage concessions from the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, had gained at least 10 sets of concessions from its lenders.

But on the business and operations side, the company has continued its efforts to integrate its Roadway and Yellow transportation networks and find other opportunities to expand and improve service in its national less-than-truckload sector as well as its regional operations.

Here is some of the coverage from Logistics Today over the past year:
