Darrel Harris has been named president of Yellow Corp. six months after joining the Overland Park, Kan., company as executive vice president of strategic initiatives.
Officials say Harris has been charged with not only instituting a companywide transformation to modernize the way freight is delivered but also to expand and enhance the services available to Yellow—a less-than-truckload carrier with 200,000 customers.
“Darrel is well-positioned to help drive Yellow toward a vibrant future. He brings innovative, exciting ideas and leadership to his new role,” CEO Darren Hawkins said. “He started his trucking career working the docks, and few are better positioned to understand this industry than those who have worked at all levels.”
Yellow, previously know as YRC, is an Association partner. Members receive freight discounts.
