A YRC Worldwide Inc. subsidiary is planning to hire 450 over-the-road and local city drivers in Midwest markets.

In a release Wednesday, the Overland Park-based trucking company (Nasdaq: YRCW) said Holland is focusing on recruiting drivers in the areas of Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

Holland, one of YRC’s regional brands, is seeing increased demand for next-day delivery and already hired an additional 1,050 drivers during the past year and a half, the company said.

Last month, YRC Freight, which oversees Holland and other regional carriers, said it planned to hire 200 over-the-road truckers to deal with increased shipments.

YRC is busily rebuilding its status as one of the nation’s largest trucking companies after the recession cut demand and forced it to twice restructure its finances.
