Roadway Launches Expedited Ocean Service from China

Akron, Ohio, April 9, 2008 – Roadway, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide Inc. (Nasdaq: YRCW), in cooperation with YRC Logistics Global has launched an expedited ocean service from China to the United States, added new supply chain services at both origin and destination for international shippers, and expanded logistics offerings to more global markets.

At least six days faster than standard ocean transit, the new Roadway Expedited Ocean Service for less-than-container-load shipments features multiple weekly sailings from seven origin ports in China. Priority unloading of containers at U.S. ports further speeds deliveries. Import shipments are expedited through the Roadway network, with guaranteed delivery to final destination.

“Our new Roadway Expedited Ocean Service meets a need in the marketplace for a reliable, cost-effective alternative to air transit for less-than-container-load shipments from China. It is just one aspect of our ability to create the right combination of service and expertise wherever needed in the supply chain through our expanded global offerings,” said Roadway President Terry Gilbert.

* With the expansion of global transportation and logistics capabilities, Roadway now offers more services in more markets worldwide. All services are provided in conjunction with YRC Logistics Global, an NVOCC-licensed affiliate.

Services include global freight forwarding, inland transportation, global logistics, global trade management expertise, technology for shipment visibility and control, and supply chain management services. In addition, port deconsolidation services are available in the United States for complex requirements, including delivery direct to the retail floor.
