Why is Holland still interlining freight to Canada with Speedy ? Why not keep the freight in house with Yellow Canada aka Reimer Express ?

Speedy's cheaper than Reimer. Reimer is, and always has been, a more domestically oriented carrier. Even Reimer uses Speedy to move freight around; when I was still there I did a linehaul from Reimer Montreal to Yeller in Buffalo on one occasion and I was told it was normal.

If memory serves, Reimer is, or was owned by YRC? Their canadian division

Reimer was formerly owned by Roadway, then YRC when Yellow bought Roadway. Operated as YRC/Reimer for a while till re-branded as Yellow Freight.

PS - Yellow used to interline with Midland prior to the Yellow/Roadway merge.

Corrections welcomed. :smile new:

Didn't get a pic but we had a Reimer express trailer in MI (I mean 386) last week don't know where it came from or where it went.

Started out as Reimer Express then Reimer Roadway Express, next step was YRC Reimer before trying out YRC Freight Canada, they will soon attempt Yellow Freight Canada to see if that name sticks around for a while. The only constant thing I’ve seen in my time here is that the pay checks hit my bank account every other Wednesday without fail.

Yellow did have two separate companies within Canada; Yellow Freight System of Ontario (operated Montreal-Windsor corridor) and Yellow Freight System of BC that operated solely in Vancouver. Both were merged into Reimer when it rebranded as YRC Reimer.

If they used Midland it was probably for the east coast. Reimer had a place in Moncton for a few years, an address they still claim to operate from despite the building being empty. Speedy/Estes use Armour Transportation, iirc Yellow/Holland use Maritime Ontario.
