Meanwhile, the more ominous news for the company is the 0.5% decline in top-line revenue. This could imply that YRCW's much-ballyhooed market position may be eroding. The increase in revenue per hundredweight is odd, something normally associated with a firm that can maintain its pricing power. I'm not sure which customers still insist on paying a premium for a fat, smelly, Teamster driver to give them an attitude. Those customers are welcome to contact me to explain their reasoning.
Full disclosure: No position in YRCW, ever.
