Is This Yellow? Or Roadway?

May 22, 2007: YRC is acquiring trailers with flip-signs that say Roadway on one side, and Yellow on the other.

This will provide a pool of switchable trailers, especially for rail use. A number of Teamsters have expressed concern that it is a sign that merger of Yellow and Roadway may be on the horizon. But no major integration of operations is expected soon.


New YRC trailers: Just flip the placard and switch the company.
