    Wonder what the cost is to put new hire through this process, food,hotel,paid time there, and to sit them home,most will quit before even finally getting on road,not much faith in our futures, not with this train of thought,...but hey glad we have all that extra money laying around,you can't fix stupid

    Honestly, if the company merges it may just become Holland!

    I just pulled a 48ft city van in from a customer. Holland ex-YRCF. You can still see where the YRCF logos were.

    Does YRCF not need city vans?

    I dunno. This trailer was new enough that it had only ever had YRCF on it. I've seen old trailers from Yellow and Roadway, this wasn't one of them.

    Ok , Round Table Rumor-kinda facts are that with all this "Rightsizing" of office and Management that we are in for some kind of a big change later this year ??? merger or buyout or shut-er-down ? with them having to use cartage to move freight , something has to change ?

    Rightsizing,partner is another word for management to not admit they had too many people being paid to do not enough,to justify the amount of freight and people in the system... yrc seemed to for a while in the last few years was going back in the direction of,for example, a VP of operations,with he or she having an assistant in 4 different parts of the country,reporting to them. Now when freight levels tighten up a bit,they suddenly discover,oh,the VP guy can do this job and some more duties,and get rid of 3 other people...
