OVERLAND PARK, Kan., May 12, 2008- YRC Logistics, a wholly owned subsidiary of YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW), announced the establishment of seven new Cross Border kiosks to better meet YRC Logistics clients’ needs for expedited clearance of shipments crossing between U.S. and Canada.

To enable faster processing of shipments and increased communication with carriers, the kiosks will be strategically located in seven YRC Logistics U.S./Canada border crossing locations including:

· Peace Bridge in Buffalo, NY
· Lewiston-Queenston Bridge in Niagara Falls NY
· Ambassador Bridge in Detroit MI
· Blue Water Bridge is Port Huron MI
· Champlain NY,
· Pembina ND,
· Blaine WA.

“We are pleased to announce the placement of the innovative kiosks in these key locations,” commented Jim Ritchie, President and CEO, YRC Logistics. “It will allow our clients and employees to have a central communication point when shipping goods across the U.S. and Canadian border.”

The Kiosks will be centrally managed by brokerage experts in Buffalo, NY office, YRC Logistics Cross Borders main headquarters.

There are some major advantages of implementing the kiosks. The first is the ability to service carriers in a more efficient and timely manner allowing drivers to have access to YRC Logistics Cross Border brokerage services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Most importantly, the central processing location will allow for more consistency and efficiency among filings, leading to increased compliance with government regulations and faster processing.

The following illustrates how the Kiosks will operate: There is a camera and a telephone with each kiosk which allows communication with the drivers as they present any paperwork needed for customs clearance. Once the driver arrives at the kiosk, communication connects them to the Buffalo office. The driver scans any required documents based upon the client and the type of goods being shipped. The Buffalo, NY office reviews the documents and returns the required information back to the driver for immediate Customs processing and border crossing.
