YRCW cites improving Q1 shipment trends.


May 19, 2010

Less-than-truckload transportation services provider YRC Worldwide (YRCW) reported at the end of April that total shipments per weekday are inching up for its YRC National Transportation and YRC Regional Transportation subsidiaries. For the first quarter, YRCW said total shipments per workday were approximately 42,700 for YRC National and 33,700 for YRC Regional. Total shipments per workday showed sequential gains from January through March for both Regional (up 8.2 percent from January to February) and National (up 9.2 percent from January to February). Even though YRCW saw sequential shipment-per-day gains throughout the first quarter, these numbers are down on an annual basis, with National down 33.5 percent and Regional down 13 percent.
