What's New at Reddaway

Good quarter, great future!

Reddaway TractorWith YRC Regional Transportation and YRC Logistics turning a profit, and substantial operating cash flow improvements, YRC Worldwide performance gained significant momentum during the third quarter, despite the continued economic downturn.

Reddaway was an important contributor to that success. As the best next-day service provider in the region, customers experience the value only Reddaway can deliver—the most next-day lanes, extremely reliable on-time service and a claim ratio that's about half the industry average.

The future looks even brighter.

Our lending group understands our plan to manage through this down economy, and they are working with us to make our plan work.

New agreements give us more runway while our customers benefit from a slowly improving economy.

And service portfolio enhancements, such as more Guaranteed Delivery options, give us the flexibility to better meet your supply chain needs. That's confidence delivered!

North to Alaska, with confidence!

Regional service mapBusiness is brisk in Alaska, and you can rely on Reddaway to get your products there, on time and hassle-free.

We deliver less-than-truckload and truckload services to Alaska, including direct loading to Soldotna, Anchorage and Fairbanks.

Your shipments arrive in Tacoma, where they are consolidated into steamship containers for twice-weekly sailings to Alaska.

Shipments that arrive in Seattle on Tuesday or Thursday can be in Ketchikan in four days—or Anchorage, Wrangell, Petersburg, Sitka or Juneau in five days.

Time to make that sailing? Remember, Reddaway Guaranteed Delivery into Seattle means shipments arrive on time and without the expense of air service.

Reddaway works with Pacific Alaska Freightways for container service to Central and Western Alaska and barge service to Southeast Alaska.  Once in Alaska, your shipments continue their journey with the PAF-owned and -operated network. PAF also operates state-of-the-art technology for rating and clear documentation and real-time tracing and tracking, using your Reddaway PRO number.

We make transportation to Alaska convenient with single-carrier responsibility, rates through to the final destination and a single invoice (with itemized charges).

ISM indices rise in October

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) reported sharp increases in new orders, production, employment and its PMI index during October.

However, the ISM's Manufacturing Business Survey Committee chair, Norbert Ore, cautions that the numbers may be a bit too high, and most likely will drop next month, saying "This is not a robust economy."

Commodity prices hit year high

The Journal of Commerce and the Economic Cycle Research Institute reported in their Industrial Price Index that prices on products used in manufacturing hit a year high for the week ending Oct. 30.
