Yellow Expands to Nashville and Charlotte
March 15, 2001
As part of an ongoing re-structuring of the Yellow North American transportation network, the company has expanded its Standard Ground Regional Advantage service to Nashville, Tenn., and Charlotte, N.C.
The change will allow the Overland Park, Kan., based carrier to reduced transit times by one and two days on nearly 1,900 lanes connecting all major metro markets in the Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic regions. The change reconfigures local pickup and delivery and shipment handling operations, as well as over-the-road transportation schedules at 89 service facilities that feed into the Nashville and Charlotte distribution facilities.
The changes will create numerous new job opportunities, job openings on more sought-after daytime shifts and additions to seniority lists for drivers and dock professionals. The company now employs nearly 650 people in Nashville and nearly 850 in Charlotte.
Yellow plans to introduce Standard Ground Regional Advantage service in four more regions this year.
