Trucking company moving 120 jobs to Overland Park

February 16, 2012


— Trucking company YRC Worldwide says it will move 120 jobs to its headquarters in Overland Park.

Kansas officials announced Wednesday that most of the jobs will be moved from Akron, Ohio, the site of the headquarters of Roadway Corp., which YRC acquired in 2003.

YRC Worldwide said last month that it was selling the former Roadway headquarters and moving some jobs out of Ohio.

The Kansas Department of Commerce said the new jobs in Overland Park are mostly in accounting, customer service and cargo claims.

The Kansas City Star reports that YRC Worldwide owned Yellow Freight and Roadway before combining them into one carrier, now called YRC Freight.

I totally understand this Trucking Company pulling out of Topeka, because the Crime Rates are getting out of hand here. After I win my Lawsuit against the Director of Driver's Control, I'll go to Overland Park and put in my App for a Truck Driving job. So, YRC, don't move from Overland Park because I'll be there in a couple of months.
