AKRON, Ohio — Goodyear will be supplying commercial tires to some of YRC Worldwide Inc.’s operating companies within Akron-based YRC Regional Transportation, the companies have announced.
Under the arrangement, Goodyear will supply replacement and retread truck tires and tire services for several of the operating companies through 2008. YRC Worldwide was formerly known as Yellow Roadway Corporation.
“Our long-term relationship with Yellow Roadway and our ability to offer a comprehensive service package of original equipment, replacement and retreaded tires as well as value-added services are key to this new agreement,” said Steve McClellan, Goodyear vice president of commercial tire systems. “We’re obviously excited to be working with YRC Regional Transportation companies.”
“We believe that by using our national network of commercial tire centers, YRC Regional Transportation will improve its efficiency in maintaining its fleet. Our collection of fleet management tools puts YRC Regional Transportation in complete control,” he said.
