Yellow Transportation launches expedited ocean service
Yellow Transportation said it will begin offering expedited ocean service for guaranteed, on-time delivery of less-than-containerload shipments moving from China to the United States.
The service will be offered in conjunction with the non-vessel-operating common carrier YRC Logistics Global. Both companies are units of YRC Worldwide Inc.
“Expedited ocean is the inventive solution for customers who need delivery faster than standard ocean service, but don’t require the speed of air transit,” says Maynard Skarka, president of Yellow Transportation. “By building on our proven expertise in expedited deliveries, Yellow Transportation helps customers realize faster inventory turns, and a reduced cash-to-cash cycle.”
The service will give shippers flexible shipment dates, and allows them to track cargo from foreign port to final U.S. destination.
