    Yellow trucks lined up in a row

    A year ago, we announced the beginning of our company’s transformation into a super-regional, less-than-truckload carrier. This major shift has involved providing our customers with one technology platform, as well as a North American network that combines the speed of our regional service with the scope of our long-haul network – all under a revitalized, Yellow Corporation brand.


    The launch of MyYellow.com is an important part of that transformation. Soon it will be a fully functional online presence, a one-stop digital shop that allows customers of all our trucking companies to get rate quotes, plan shipments and track their freight from pick-up to delivery. In addition to making it faster and easier to do business with Yellow than ever before, MyYellow is designed to provide you with the most relevant, up-to-date information about our company, our services and the transportation industry at large.


    That’s where our new blog comes in. We call it The Extra Mile.


    A Trusted Resource for Shippers


    Our goal at Yellow, of course, is to go the extra mile for our customers every single day, whether it is on the road, in our terminals, on the loading docks, or online. We have launched our blog with that same can-do spirit. We want The Extra Mile to be a trusted resource of well-researched, original content you cannot get anywhere else. Topics we will cover in the coming months include the following:


    Industry Insights– It’s a great time to be in trucking and transportation, but also a time of continuous change. We’ll keep you informed on the most impactful news and information affecting our industry with periodic market perspectives, as well as thought leadership articles from Yellow executives and transportation experts.


    One Yellow– As our transformation into one leading super-regional carrier continues, we will share news, feature stories and case studies about our ever-evolving services and capabilities, as well as how we are going above and beyond to meet customer needs every day.


    Shipping Tips– Whether you are new to shipping or a seasoned transportation professional, it always helps to know about the most effective ways to move freight from Point A to Point B. We’ll share important “how to” information, from our basic guide to shipping to tips on how to best lock in trucking capacity and manage shipping costs.


    Safety and Sustainability– From hiring the best professional drivers in the business to optimizing the fuel consumption and efficiency of our network, Yellow is at the forefront of safety and sustainability, and always seeking ways to improve. We’ll provide the latest news and information about our efforts to keep the roads (and your shipments) safe, as well as our new initiatives related to environment, social and governance (ESG).


    People of Yellow – We’re biased, but we think we have the best people in the business – the best drivers, dockworkers, customer service specialists and beyond. We want to introduce you to some of these people behind the Yellow brand, from million-mile drivers to military veterans to professionals who have earned the highest honors in our industry. We’re proud of our people and we want to share their stories.


    Our Journey Continues


    The Extra Mile is just one piece of our ongoing effort to become the best super-regional trucking company in America, but it is an important one. We believe you’ll find it to be a useful, informative resource as we work together to navigate a shipping industry that is constantly changing. Please be sure to check back often for the latest posts.
