Yellow Corp., Overland Park, Kan., is integrating two of its regional subsidiaries into its Atlanta-based Saia subsidiary.

WestEx and Action Express will operate under the Saia name. Upon completion of the integration in early March, Saia Motor Freight will cover 21 states stretching from Florida to Washington state. The service region includes all of the Sunbelt states, plus California, the Pacific Northwest and the Rocky Mountain states.
"This strategic move better positions us to handle the needs of our customers by allowing us to extend our consistent, quality regional service throughout a 21-state area, an increase from 12 states," said Saia President and CEO Rick O'Dell. "Our mission will not change from being the premier provider of one and two day service in our direct coverage area," he added.
Adding Action and WestEx will place Saia in the top fifteen LTL carriers by revenue in the country.
In addition to Saia's traditional LTL operation, Yellow's Regional Group includes Jevic Transportation, a hybrid, breakbulk free operation with heavier LTL freight focus. Jevic will continue to operate as a separate company.
