YRC WorldWide History

YRC WorldWide is a transportation holding company.

The company was founded by Grover Cleveland Harrell in 1906 as the Yellow Cab Company with a horse-drawn hack and a team of horses.

Soon after he began to buy automobiles (Model T Fords) and in 1918 started painting the cars yellow. He subsequently copyrighted the “Yellow Cab” name.

In 1968 the company changed its name to Yellow Freight Systems to reflect an expansion of services.

In 1992 the company created Yellow Corporation, a holding company with Yellow Transportation as its largest division.

Today YRC WorldWide, through its subsidiaries, transports goods for manufacturing, wholesale, retail, and government customers in the US, Canada, and some international markets.

The company’s principal subsidiaries are YRC Freight, YRC Reimer, YRC Regional Transportation, New Penn, USF Holland, and USF Reddaway.

YRC WorldWide is publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol YRCW, is #506 in the Fortune 1000, has 32,000 employees, and had $4.99 billion in revenue in 2013.

Sad that one of the top notch company’s in the industry has done a 180 on the way they do business. Others will keep picking away and one day you will be one of the company’s that people are asking what happened to YRC.

Wake up.

I was a former dockworker at Maybrook NY facility and a 3rd gen teamster. I have worked for roadway/yrc for 17 years. Why did business agent John Zirpoli tell me to put my withdrawal card in when I told him Pedro Gomez (coworker) called me a white “n” word for working “too hard” cause he kept misloading time critical shipments and I had to correct them. I put my card in and I am confused cause I did nothing wrong. I just wanted him to come down and have a talk to me and Pedro about the racist namecalling.

I have been with Reddaway for 5 yrs out of redding ca why do you load out power units from fontana ca north before our own units this makes all loads later than normal. also its a pain to deal with two sets of different chain sizes and the 1/2 inch rubber on the side of trailer are to stiff and ugly cant get chains under them. if you have questions about this put one of your suits in the truck and let them chain in the snow

This has been the most struggling thing in my life. I shouldn’t have ship with you guys. Now I learn my lesson and if I could talk to the owner of this company or to the media I would let everybody know how awful your services are. I ship with you guys from fort Myers and while I understand that It was due to the hurricane my shipment was not picked up on the set date. That’s just one. #2 I didn’t ship 1000 as was expected and I shipped 480 lbs. Not only did the manage did anything in compensate me for that, but they lie to me telling me that they will email me and let me know what’s going on. They never did. No my delivery is schedule for today September 22 and it say that online and when I call the terminal they will not delivery it because it didn’t go on the truck when online it say loaded on trailer and ready to go. Now I need important doXXXXent protecting to the my job with the department of defense. Now they are telling me not until Monday. I toke the day from work to stay home to get this delivery and now they are tell me Monday that’s going to be two days from work or I can buy gas and pay toll and pick them up. I already paid over 500 and now it’s going to cost me much more. At what point is YRC freight going to step in and help me. I need my goods today. Or I am going to go legal.

I am a shipping/receiving company in North Dakota. I am located a few miles from the Canadian, majority of my customers are Canadian. I scheduled a pickup in Walla Walla, Washington to be delivered to North Dakota. I have the quote number and the pickup number, I also have a BOL for this pickup. The pickup was at a farm. The farmer and I did not connect immediately, it took a day. He knew nothing about me, he only knew who the pallet was sold to, a place in Canada. The YRC driver arrived at the farm before the BOL. I have been told MANY times that YRC drivers DO NOT create BOL’s, so no sense going there. For some reason, the BOL (created somewhere by someone) has a ship to address of the company that the farmer sold the pallet to (which is in Canada). If one checks the pick up date, it is complete. So, now , the situation is – I have 1 pallet with a BOL(by the way, my name and address are not on) waiting to go into Canada. YRC is expecting my customer to not only pay more for shipping into Canada, but also to pay for broker fees(which are not cheap) or pay to have the pallet rerouted back to where it was supposed to go in the first place(North Dakota). My question is, Why are we (my customer and I) responsible for this? Procedure and policy is no BOL, no freight. The pick up number should have been a very good reference point as to where the shipment should have gone if it would have been checked. This issue needs to resolved ASAP. Please advise.

I would like to know how or why the office is out sourcing 19 loads to c.r. England. every day out ofFontana and loading them before our own trucks going north to Portland and seattle. reddaway

I am a Yrc road driver in Richland, Ms or Jackson, Ms. whichever one you would like to call it. I’m complaining about our terminal manager Charles from Atlanta, that we have only had for a short time. It’s bad enough that the company is taking the 15% percent and pension from us, but to put up with this hostile work environment and work place harassment doesn’t make any sense. We come to work to do our jobs and go home to our beautiful families, not to be harassed for taking time off after we have built up our tours and have use sick days and vacations time, when we have enough eto days. We also have to deal with him holding freight, and denying all of our pay request that we should be payed for. I hope the company does something about this before a lawsuit is filed.

to James Welch ceo YRC World Wide,
My employee number is 18533. I am a mechanic in terminal 126. I would like to know just what you did to deserve a 1.3 million dollar bonus? We at YRC have been giving back 15% since 2009, and still have recieved nothing in return. I think you and all the other ceos under the YRC umbrella, have just lined your pockets along with what ever union officals you sleep with. Why cant we get anything back? Maybe something in our pension funds? After all you get rich on our blood. Our pension fund is going broke, and we are the laughing stock of the industry. While a non union company is paying 2 to 3 dollars more an hour for mechanics, drivers, dockmen, and those in the office. Also dont you think we have given back enough all ready? Dont you think our families have suffered enough? I am planning to retire in May of next year, I’d like to think my pension will be there after 30 years of service.
Arthur Wilson 18533

And thank you sir for your time.

I am a former employee who quit due to lack of consistency and lack of management skills from our supposedly leadership personnel. I am currently trying to get my taxes done but my W2 say I earned money while working for YRC in Maryland when I only worked for YRC in Oregon. I have tried to contact the payroll tax department, leaving voice mails that never get returned. I have tried using W2 express which is what the automated response is when you request any W2 information. I am not sure what the problem is here but this sure is poor customer service. Yes I am a customer even though I am not making a request to move freight. I do not know what to do at this point so I am hoping someone at YRC actually reads these feedback remarks and takes action. I am frustrated beyond words.

Teresa Metz October 4, 2015 at 2:42 pm

My husband Gary Metz recently retired from YRC as a over the road driver he has always been a dedicated employer never missed a day of work in 37 years he missed the birth of his children and activities going on with them and a whole lifetime of family events which isn’t your fault but come on his reward for all that and his safe driving record with you was a cheap blanket and a card stock award for his dedicated service wow how impressive is that
