YRC Regional Transportation, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide, on Thursday, Feb. 7, announced the closing of 27 service centers operated by USF Reddaway and USF Holland on Feb. 22.
USF Holland will close six service centers: in Albany, Ga.; Jackson, Miss.; Lumberton, N.C.; Little Rock, Ark.; Mobile, Ala.; and Metter, Ga. USF Reddaway will close 21 service centers in Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
YRC Regional Transportation says it will continue to serve those areas through other resources of its YRC North American Transportation group of companies. More details will be communicated to employees and customers affected by the changes over the next couple of weeks, the company said.
“Over the years, USF Reddaway and USF Holland have built strong reputations for being leading providers of high-quality next-day and second-day regional service,” said Keith Lovetro, president of YRC Regional Transportation, based in Akron, Ohio. “Protecting that level of service and quality is one of the most important things we must do – and at times it means making some difficult decisions.”
USF Holland and USF Reddaway remain strong companies, Lovetro said. “These changes will allow them to focus on their core areas and strengths, and continue providing solutions that meet the stringent requirements of our regional customers,” he said.
