Case Studies

Yellow and the Yellow Government Solutions Team have a long history of helping departments and agencies within the U.S. government successfully complete their missions.  The following case studies recap a few examples.

Customized solution ensures timely arrival of gear and equipment for National Guard pre-mobilization training

Challenge:  In 2010 before shipping to Iraq, 3,000 soldiers….. In addition to getting the soldiers to training camp, the Guard needed to ensure the soldiers’ personal gear from armories across the state, as well as the Humvees, wreckers and special vehicles they would train on, also arrived at camp on time.

Solution: A Yellow Government Solutions Team account executive assembled a team of transportation and logistics engineers and operations professionals to plan and coordinate a customized solution.  Continuous follow up allowed us to fine-tune our solution as details emerged and plans evolved.

Result: Exclusive-use equipment was dedicated to the mission, including 123 20-foot trailers and 183 flatbeds with step decks and removable goosenecks.  The move, which took seven days, went as planned. Without the distractions of missing shipments, soldiers could prepare physically and mentally for their upcoming tour of duty.

Comprehensive network simplifies fulfillment of VA commitment

Challenge: The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs furnishes headstones and markers for the gravesites of the deceased, regardless of the final resting place.  The VA needed a transportation provider who could deliver to a destination anywhere around the world.

Solution: The Yellow Government Solutions Team leverages the assets of our comprehensive network to fulfill the VA’s commitment.  Dedicated personnel at our Des Moines call center work closely with the VA to ensure delivery requirements are met.  Track and trace services monitor the status along the way.

Result: YRC Freight has successfully delivered headstones as far away as Alaska and as deep into the country’s interior as a Nevada Indian Reservation. We’re proud to help the VA in its mission to ensure our country’s service men and women are remembered.
