Yellow Roadway changes company name to YRC Worldwide Inc.

| Tuesday, January 03, 2006

Yellow Roadway Corp. announced Tuesday, Jan. 3, that it has changed its name to YRC Worldwide Inc., and as of January 4, its stock ticker will change from “YELL” to “YRCW” on the NASDAQ stock market.

“Simply put, the breadth and depth of the enterprise is greater than the name Yellow Roadway conveys,” Bill Zollars, the company’s chairman, president and CEO, said in a press release. “We now operate in over 70 countries around the world and our services have expanded to encompass logistics as well as global, national and regional transportation.”

The new name signals YRC’s continued expansion. The company acquired Roadway Corp. in December 2003 and USF Corporation in May 2005, and is expanding its capabilities through recent China-based joint ventures.

In conjunction with the name change, YRC Worldwide has changed its Web site address to yrcw.com.
