Trucking giant YRC Worldwide chose a Scott D. Ware, a 27-year trucking veteran, to serve as president of its regional less-than-truckload subsidiary Holland.

Ware, 51, who has worked for Holland since 2007, succeeds Michael J. Naatz, who left the trucking company May 4 to become CIO at railroad Kansas City Southern.

Ware formerly was vice president of operations at the Holland, Mich.-based company, one of three regional LTL carriers owned by YRC Worldwide.

"Scott has been an integral part of the Holland success story for the past five years," James Welch, CEO of the $4.9 billion LTL holding company, said in a statement.

Before joining Holland, Ware directed line haul operations at regional LTL carrier Saia and Jevic Transportation and was a freight flow manager at Con-way.

The regional carrier group, which includes Holland, New Penn Motor Express and Reddaway, accounts for about a third of YRC's $4.9 billion annual business.

Holland is the largest of the three regional companies in terms of locations and power equipment, with 57 service centers and more than 5,400 tractors.

In the first quarter, the regional carriers increased their combined revenue 9.8 percent from a year ago to $402 million, boosting net profit to $11.4 million.

Strong automotive sales and a related surge in manufacturing have helped Holland increase freight volume and revenue in its 12-state Central U.S. territory.
