    Thinking of jumping ship to HUNTINGTON/GALLIPOLIS TERMINAL FROM XPO. FOR THE RECORD, WHAT WOULD BE THE HOURLY AND MILEAGE RATE IF -15% WAS GIVEN BACK ON 2019 CONTRACT?

    YRC Profits Plunge 78% in Third Quarter
    Hurricanes Create Network Problems in Freight Division
    [​IMG] TT File Photo
    YRC Worldwide CEO James Welch was hopeful three months ago that the third quarter would be in line with the second quarter, but that was before two hurricanes wreaked havoc in Texas and Florida, slashing the company’s operating income due to unexpected higher expenses to rent transportation.

    YRC's earnings plummeted 78% year-over-year in the third quarter to $5.5 million, or 9 cents per share. One year ago, the numbers were $13.9 million, or 42 cents. In the second quarter of this year, YRC made $19 million, or 56 cents.

    Certainly, not having the right mix of equipment at times has hurt us.

    Such a well run ship, we are going to have to tell the shareholders that the rank and file will continue to contribute going into the 2019 contract and that we have a side deal all worked out with Mr. Hoffa for additional sacrifice on behalf of its membership.

    Due to requirements placed upon us by the Federal Regulations we have had to invest heavily in outdated technology and this placed additional burdens upon our projections for Q3. The missed pickups and trapped freight associated with this colossal snafu will strengthen our ties with our customer base as they are and have always been tolerant to our excuses.

    We faced many obstacles in Q3 that were unpredictable from natural disasters, to retention and recruitment from managerial positions to basic labor. Unexpected flight of unprecedented numbers from one terminal alone in one of our Regional Carriers has thrown a curve ball into our overall strategy. As we sit around the board room contimplating just how we can further devise a plan to have the rank and file give back just a little more, we are in complete shock that those same employees would abandon our fine company.

    We will now look forward and project a much smaller forecast for Q4 factoring in the replacement and upgrade to existing equipment.

    Gentlemen we all know April 1, 2019 is fast approaching and we have to keep our sights aimed at preserving the winning strategy that has thus far gotten us to this point.

    In the coming days and months I predict we will have a complete turn around of our fine establishment. We will live long and prosper and our employees will reap the rewards of the gathered braintrust gathered today.

    In conclusion to today’s outstanding performance numbers I am announcing a new division for the YRC Family of Companies.

    YRC Wholesale:
    After months of review and study we have come to the conclusion that we have an opportunity to recoup some of our losses from damaged and lost freight.

    Over the next few months we are going to assign a dock supervisor at each terminal to go through all of the call trailers and trap trailers and determine the condition and location of all of the freight we have already paid claims on. The EBAY marketplace is just one of the avanues that we can recoup the marginal losses that we have incurred. Looking forward in the coming quarters we may just recoup a small percentage of our overall losses.

    This is an exciting time at YRC rolling out this new division. We all are well aware that due to the inability of our system to properly service our customers we have now had to look in a new direction. The over all projected labor cost will be much reduced as we can hire casuals and temps to sort through the freight. To further reduce costs for this I am looking to contract the Golden Hotel to distribute.

    On your way out the door please do not forget to pick up your bonus checks for the outstanding job that you have done in guiding and directing this company.

    Famous last words. Written with the sole purpose of getting back to the employees.:6792:


    A new department created to take care of claims and lost freight? How about just getting the :shit: delivered and stop wrecking it.

    :duh:
