YRC installs kiosks to speed U.S.-Canadian border crossings

| 5/15/2008

In an attempt to speed up the process of getting its trucks across the U.S.-Canadian border, YRC Logistics has put up seven kiosks, or booths, at key border crossings.

The locations are: The Peace Bridge in Buffalo, NY; Lewiston-Queenston Bridge in Niagara Falls; the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit; the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron, MI; Champlain, NY; Pembina, ND; and Blaine, WA.

Each kiosk has a telephone and scanner to connect the truck driver with YRC’s Buffalo, NY, logistics office.

Workers in Buffalo can check the documents related to the type of goods being shipped to make sure everything’s in order and that the driver is ready to proceed through customs.
