For Yellow less-than-truckload, the percent change 2021 from 2020:

“We continue executing our yield strategy to ensure the optimum level of freight is flowing through the network,” said Darren Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer. “Our plan is to grow the business and we are confident that our transformation to One Yellow positions us for long-term tonnage growth.
