YRC Freight Introduces New Faster Standard “Accelerated” Shipping Service

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., April 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shippers looking for a faster standard shipping option can now rely on the new “Accelerated” service from YRC Freight. Shipments delivered through the new Accelerated service reach their destinations one to two days faster than standard transit times and are made possible through a dual speed network at the company.

The Accelerated service is the direct result of customer feedback and rounds out what is already one of the most comprehensive and diverse service offerings in the industry.

“It is important that our customers always know we have the technology, the services and the people to fulfill their needs,” said Darren Hawkins, president of YRC Freight. “Today, I’m excited to announce our new Accelerated service which provides a faster standard shipping option for their shipments. This new service addition, combined with our already comprehensive portfolio of services and coverage, creates the opportunity for customers to use YRC Freight in every aspect of their supply chain.”

Accelerated shipments move through YRC Freight’s faster network, increasing customers’ speed to market. It’s available throughout the continental United States and as a cross-border service between United States, Canada and Mexico. To further speed up delivery, Accelerated shipments continue to move over the weekend without delay.

YRC Freight’s new Accelerated service fits between the company’s “Standard” service and “Time-Critical” premium service. It’s a smart option for customers who need non-guaranteed shipments to reach their destinations faster.
