Just weeks after its
$1.37 billion acquisition of USF Corp., Yellow Roadway Corp. announced it will
close USF Dugan, a regional carrier, effective July 8.
According to The Kansas City Star, the Wichita-based USF Dugan’s operations center will
be replaced by other regional carriers run by Yellow’s newly formed YRC
Regional Transportation moniker, including USF Holland, USF Beltway and USF
approximately 2,300 employees, including 1,900 drivers and dock workers, Jim
Staley, YRC president, told The Star. Staley said the company
does not yet know how many employees will remain with USF, but encouraged them
to apply for jobs with the incoming YRC company.
