The transportation rankings, released in the November 2011 edition of the magazine, cover transportation, logistics, supply chain, distribution, and warehousing. YRC is ranked third among all companies in that category.

"We're very honored to be in the Top 5 for the fifth year in a row," says Wayne "Butch" Day, vice president of corporate security for YRC Worldwide.
