Yellow Transportation, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide Inc., announced the launch of its enhanced Definite Delivery Window service, designed to help both retailers and vendors work together more efficiently and provide greater accuracy within their supply chain.
“The Yellow Transportation Definite Delivery Window will add precision to our service capabilities that are unique to the marketplace,” says Mike Smid, president and chief executive officer of Overland Park, Kan.-based YRC North American Transportation. “Our goal is to create possibilities for our customers. We listen to them and then work to improve services that enhance the customer experience.”
The upgraded service is designed to allow vendors the flexibility to define the level of delivery precision. According to the company, the Yellow Transportation Definite Delivery Window will help both the retailer and vendor achieve their goals, including reduced inventory costs, more predictable replenishment cycles, process simplification and time savings, and ultimately both sales and margin growth.
“Several leading retail vendors signed up in advance to take advantage of this new service capability,” says Rick Mathews, vice president of specialized services for YRC North American Transportation. “We expect more will sign up as they become familiar with it, and understand the impact it can have on their business. It is a strong complement to the overall value we can provide customers through our other expedited and precision delivery services, Exact Express and Definite Delivery.”
