The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has been awarded a supply arrangement by YRC Worldwide Inc. (formerly known as Yellow Roadway Corp.) to provide commercial tires to some of its operating companies within YRC Regional Transportation.
Under the agreement, Goodyear will supply replacement and retread truck tires and tire services in North America through 2008.
“We believe that by using our national network of commercial tire centers, YRC Regional Transportation will improve its efficiency in maintaining its fleet,” said Steve McClellan, Goodyear vp of commercial tire systems. “Our collection of fleet management tools puts YRC Regional Transportation in complete control.”
YRC Regional Transportation delivers nationwide service in the next-day, second-day and time-sensitive markets. YRC Regional Transportation is a division of YRC Worldwide; it was created in May 2005 when the company acquired USF Corp.
