YRC Worldwide Launches HNRY Logistics
OVERLAND PARK, Kan., December 3, 2018 In this new era of tight capacity, YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW) is well positioned to respond to the complexities of our customers supply chains with a suite of solutions that complement our less-than-truckload (LTL) services. By combining one of the worlds largest LTL networks with a freight brokerage and customer-facing transportation management system (TMS), YRCW is building the future of logistics.
We are excited to leverage the enterprise synergies of Holland, New Penn, Reddaway, YRC Freight and now HNRY Logistics to bring more value to our customer base, stated Darren Hawkins, chief executive officer of YRC Worldwide. With a North American focus, HNRY Logistics is comprised of five service divisions: Truckload Direct, Express Direct, Residential Direct, Engineered Solutions and Contract Logistics.
HNRY Logistics blends cutting-edge technology and multi-mode solutions with our fleet of nearly 60,000 assets. This hybrid logistics model gives the customer a convenient one-stop-shop for all of their capacity needs.
After studying market trends and customer demand, we opted to build our own in-house freight brokerage and offer a carrier-direct TMS shipping portal (myHNRY), stated Hawkins. Our customers will have a single access point to our entire network and brokerage from rate shopping to dispatch to tracking to payment creating a seamless digital customer experience.
In addition to the TMS product, we have developed an online Corporate Account Management Portal (campHNRY) to enhance our logistics services for enterprise customers, including robust digital tools for case management, data analytics and more, stated Hawkins.
