OVERLAND PARK, Kan., June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- YRC Freight, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW), recently implemented significant improvements to its North American LTL (less-than-truckload) network, which now features faster service into and out of every major U.S. city.

With its new network optimization plan fully engaged, YRC Freight is now at least one day faster than before in hundreds of the most significant supply chain lanes in North America. These include Charlotte to Seattle (now 4 days instead of 5), Indianapolis to Los Angeles (now 3 days), Milwaukee to Tampa (now 2 days), and Salt Lake City to Denver (now 1 day).
