YRC Announces General Rate Increase

September 13, 2010

YRC has announced a general rate increase of 5.9 percent, effective September 20, 2010. In a letter sent to YRC shippers, a company executive stated that it would be necessary to pass along a portion of YRC's expenses outside of its direct control. This includes rising healthcare costs, highway infrastructure improvements and environmental sustainability requirements.

Trucking GRIs are usually announced around the New Year, but higher operating costs and strong demand may help accelerate trucking rate increases this fall.
