    I believe they are leaving the next day business to their regional carriers.

    Then maybe this is the reason for the small hiring process at most terminals then........

    They can't compete in the next-day market as it is, so why bother? I've seen their service map and out of Atlanta there are points in GA that are 2 day! Seems kinda dumb to get out of it since a majority of LTL freight is next-day. Can anyone say CF???

    That DOES sound like what CF did! See, CF, or the parent of CF which was CNF is still in business. It's now Con-way Inc. They spun CF motor freight off by itself after they built and strengthened the Con-way companies, stood back from a distance, and watched that mother burn to the ground.

    dont really see how Holland or Reddyway can do this on a national scale seeing how they are regional. didnt YRC buy USF to get into the nextday market. kinda waste of a few billion i see

    I think its a smart move. I dont know what the plan is to try to move the freight to the regionals. Their linehaul system sounds like a mess.

    YRC Freight, the Official new name is getting out of the over night service and concentrating on the 2-5 day service. There sister companies New Penn, Holland, and Reddaway will handle the over night service. One small problem with this scenario is Reddaway, New Penn, and Holland doesn't cover the states of ND, SD, NE, OK, NM, TX, LA, AR, FL, VA, They have one terminal in KS and GA, and two terminals in AL. I guess they plan to give this freight to other companies to deliver. That should make the customer happy when he's trying to track a shipment or file a claim.

    They are coming for our choo choo freight. Fred might just give it to them, he really likes supporting the union, just not for us. Hmmmmmmm wonder why. Take freight from none union FedEx Freight employees and give to union railroad. Union good if Fred can make money with it, but bad if we might.:cuss:

    I was wondering the same thing. How will they move next day here in the mid-west?
    Like formerEdriver said, maybe expand the regional carriers?
    But that would cost huge bucks and take a long time.
    Sounds like a lot of freight is gonna be up for grabs in the middle of the map.

    I wonder how they will hand off the business to the regionals.They assume they will keep the business,or at least the guys on the TB talk that way.

    In the YRC forum one driver for YRC said he delivers Holland freight in an area that Holland doesn't service. So maybe If they don't have a regional carrier in a certain area YRC will interline for them

    They loose money on every shipment they pick up so this is their way of saving money.

    Yea I know. You can't just hand over an account to another carrier. The customer decides who to load.

    If the shipper offers a next day skid to YRCF and they say "no", then it's up for grabs.
