YRC Freight Announces Driver Hiring Initiative

May 15, 2012

YRC Freight, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide, plans to hire 200 over-the-road drivers in cities across the U.S.,

primarily in Maybrook, N.Y.; Buffalo, N.Y.; St. Paul, Minn.; Chicago; Salt Lake City; Akron, Ohio; Cleveland; Cincinnati; North Indianapolis, Ind.; Charlotte, N.C.; Jackson, Miss.: Albuquerque, N.M.; and Kansas City, Mo.

"YRC Freight is growing and our volumes are building," said Jeff Rogers, president of YRC Freight. "We are the original LTL experts, and while our name has recently changed, the caliber of our workforce and our commitment to our customers remains the same as it has been for the past 85 years."

YRC Inc., a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide, rebranded itself as YRC Freight earlier this year.

YRC Freight recruits from approximately 100 truck-driving schools across the nation. The company offers training for new drivers and helps them fine-tune their freight driving skills - including how to maneuver in city traffic and how to complete hazmat required paperwork.
