James Welch knows a thing or two about business. So when the CEO of trucking operator YRC Worldwide and architect of the largest corporate turnaround in recent memory delivers a message like he did recently to his staff, shippers and carriers of all types should take notice.
Things they can controll, I wonder if this includes the old 1936 system of freight classification for LTL ? It would be interesting to see what the cost is to: 1. Use classification system in fees to the NMFTA 2. Cost to audit the pricing (think billions) 3. All the clerks needed to rate the LTL shipments,errors, same day billing at time of pick up 4. Lost opportunity to use real time pricing based on space occupied, available 5.Savings to the shipper for this on demand, web, cloud system (think airline ticket purchase)
