    Supplier of mine said this. If its going to be late, its Yellow Freight. Not dependable and F them. We will not use them and suppliers are forbidden to use them to ship to us. As a noob I loaded 3 pallets onto a trailer. Driver noted 2 even thought the BOL clearly stated 3. And he never said a word after I loaded the third pallet while he was in the truck. Going to guess he dropped that pallet off with a friend and when they found 10k worth of easy fenced tools they took it. Because the next time they picked up, a pallet was broken up and 5k worth of tools taken off.

    I may have spoken too soon, it looks like they may have lost this again.

    You can buy a 20' cargo container for about $2k.

    Put the crate in the exact center of that, and then you get personalized service....one box, one driver.

    Able to be seen from satalite too....

    I've had good luck with XPO Logistics so far. They aren't always the cheapest but my stuff is taken care of and I have a great rep in my area that will always answer my calls and help out. I've even had them track something that was important and I don't think I paid extra for that.

    How does a company with as bad a reputation as YRC stay in business, in a competitive market?

    Long term relationships? Kickbacks to purchasers/shippers? Customers that are as incompetent as they are?

    Tons of businesses still open in spite of themselves. Makes you wonder how badly you need to screw up to fail. I believe in YRC’s case they’re surviving off inertia. That too shall pass.

    Seems like the same member who tried to blame everyone else for his self imposed saga a couple months ago, posting under a new name.

    An update to this sad saga.

    First- If at all possible avoid YRC.

    I shipped a crate via YRC from Massachusetts to Wisconsin. I checked a the tracking a few days after it was supposed to be delivered-- no delivery confirmation. So I called them up and they indicate they've lost the crate. This was the first flag-- when did you plan to alert me to this?? No answer. About a week and a half later I get a call that they have found they crate. This is not really correct as they have done nothing. The business they incorrectly delivered it to was kind enough to call and alert YRC that they had delivered a crate to them incorrectly. If they had not done this YRC would have no clue where the crate was delivered. YRC goes and picks up the crate and brings it back to the terminal. They indicate it will be delivered the next day. Next day tracking indicates it has been delivered. The following day I call the 'ship to' company to verify receipt. Nope YRC never delivered anything. Luckily they had video of their dock and could positively verify this. I call YRC back-- and they indicate they have again lost the crate. I've hounded them repeatedly but they can't seem to figure out where it has disappeared to.

    I saw there was an update and hoped it would be good news. Nope.

    Hope they find their asses by next week, after that they may figure out where the box is.

    " First- If at all possible avoid YRC. "

    Copy/Paste so it shows up in Google.

    Want to tell us what it was so we can properly share the pain?

    Transport companies and insurers regularly hold lost and damaged freight auctions......incredible whats there ,lots of new stuff,lots of machinery and vehicle parts ,lots of furniture,sometimes whole trailer loads from a crash........real treasure trove at times....I never missed one for years.......sometimes I d ring up the consignees ,and ask if they wanted to buy their gear......no one ever did,some were cranky,some incredulous ,but never really upset.Once bought a alternator ,described as a electric motor,next lot was a damaged Cat diesel belonged to it.......the flywheel housing had been broken in a drop or crash....The lot for scrap price.

    Removeable ways from a Taft Peirce #2 surface grinder. I was sending them out to get re-ground. The TP#2, unlike the model #1 & the model 100 is rather uncommon. These were not the ways off my working machine (small consolation) but a second set I got off a parts machine. All in, parts machine cost, shipping of the parts machine, stripping the ways out etc. they were not cheap and the chances of finding another set seem slim. These would be virtually useless to anyone else and nobody will be able to ascertain exactly what they are if they opened the crate.

    I am sure we have the technology to supply our own gps tracker in boxes/crates that we ship. Kind of like whats available to track a car or kids backpack etc.
    This one looks good, just the first one I came across that can be found remotely.

    It should be in a self addressed box to get it back after the important package arrived at its destination.
    More justifiable if you do a lot of shipping or are shipping high dollar parts.

    another general suggestion, take photos before and after crating and when load is on truck., this saved me about every 6 months when some trucker tried to claim I gave him the load damaged.
