OVERLAND PARK, Kan., June 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (NASDAQ: YRCW) For the fifth time, YRC Freight has been named National LTL Carrier of the Year by the National Shippers Strategic Transportation Council (NASSTRAC).

YRC Freight’s selection for this award indicates the carrier’s constant focus on providing superior LTL freight services.

“It’s truly an honor when a customer spotlights a job well done with ‘Carrier of the Year’ recognition,” said Jason Bergman, YRCW Chief Customer Officer and President of HNRY Logistics. “It’s especially humbling when our transportation and logistics peers in NASSTRAC award our superior customer service.”
