Yellow Trucking Co shuttered after 99 years

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry


Yellow Corp., a beleaguered trucking company that was once one of the U.S.’ largest transporters of goods, has ceased operations and is planning to file for bankruptcy, the Teamsters Union said in a statement on Monday.

The company operated for nearly 100 years, but its financial challenges snowballed, leading it to accumulate more than $1 billion in debt.

“Yellow has historically proven that it could not manage itself despite billions of dollars in worker concessions and hundreds of millions in bailout funding from the federal government,” said Teamsters General President Sean M. O’Brien in the statement. “This is a sad day for workers and the American freight industry.”

The company received a $700 million government loan during the pandemic, as part of the COVID-19 relief program in 2020.
