YRC Freight announces 4.9% general rate increase

[ August 31, 2016   //   ]

Effective September 5, 2016, YRC Freight will implement a 4.9% general base rate increase for all non-contractual shipments in the United States and cross-border Canada. Domestic Canada rates will not be adjusted at this time.

The general rate increase is being made to offset industry-specific cost pressures such as driver shortages. YRC Freight remains committed to serving transportation needs across North America with our broad portfolio of standard, expedited and specialized services.
