NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yellow Corporation (NASDAQ: YELL) reported certain operating metrics for the first two months of fourth quarter 2022.

QTD (22.0)% (3.0)% (24.3)% 21.6% 18.0%

In connection with its network optimization, without sacrificing geographical service coverage or anticipated impact to customers, Yellow plans to close and sell excess owned facilities that have overlapping service territories. In the fourth quarter 2022, the Company closed on the sale of one of these terminals for a price of approximately $31.0 million and a resulting gain of approximately $26.0 million. The net proceeds were used to pay down a portion of the term loan.

“In the near term, demand for LTL capacity continues to moderate and reflects what is taking place in the broader U.S. economy,” said Darren Hawkins, chief executive officer. “However, the LTL yield environment remains favorable and our Company’s long-term strategy remains on track as we work to complete the transformation to One Yellow. The network optimization is one of the final steps on our journey to One Yellow and the expected benefits include enhanced customer service, greater efficiencies, cost savings and additional network capacity.”
