Yes, the color is Swamp Holly Orange.
Whoever came up with the color must have been color blind and figured it was close enough.
"The orange color for the trucks and logo was a matter of pure practicality. In 1929, A. J. Harrell started to get concerned about road safety. So, he asked the DuPont corporation to figure out what color would be most visible on the highway. DuPont concluded that “swamp holly orange” would be the safest color to paint the Yellow trucking company’s vehicles. Without so much as batting an eyelash, Harrell went for it… and the Yellow trucking company has been paintings its trucks (and logos) orange ever since."
I learn (try to) something new every day.
i heard that Welch will have all dock light bulbs changed to this one before July....
Is this to commemorate the ‘sunset’ of his career at YRC?
Actually my source, on the inside, claims he is tired of hearing on TB some guy in Texas complaining about poor lighting...
This may be "fake news"
Wikipedia says Wong was allowed th choose the color in lieu of his 15% pay reduction.
If its on the internet, it must be true.
Wrong! Wong's favorite color is green - as in "green with envy"!
He may not have removed his total eclipse glasses.
Show me 100% pay not 85% pay , money walks and b.s. talks
That would be an improvement.
Can't see all the bad loads and damage in the lighting.
