About YRC

YRC or Yellow Corporation is a transport and freight company that deals with LTL shipments.

The corporation is also capable of offering freight and sea route services with tracking capabilities to its customers.

Yellow Transport was founded in 1924 as a specialized LTL shipping company. The company's headquarters is located in Overland Park, Kansas, and renders the services of about 19,000 employees to maintain its supply chain. The corporation was merged with Roadways in 1930 to form the YRC. Over the years, YRC acquired and formed various subsidiaries to innovate and enhance its supply chain operations.
