Yellow Roadway Expands Relationship with Michelin

Yellow Roadway Corp. has expanded its relationship with Michelin for new tires, retreads and service for the Yellow and Roadway fleets. Michelin said it expects Yellow Roadway will become one of its largest North American tire and retread customers. Michelin will supply more than half of the tires and retreads required to support the 450,000 consolidated wheel positions for Yellow Roadway.

GREENVILLE, SC — Yellow Roadway Corp. has expanded its relationship with Michelin for new tires, retreads and service for the Yellow and Roadway fleets.

Effective August 1, Michelin Americas Truck Tires (MATT) and Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT) will expand their business relationship with the Yellow Roadway companies, including Yellow Transportation and Roadway Express. Yellow Corp. acquired Roadway Corp. in December 2003.

Michelin said it expects Yellow Roadway will become one of its largest North American tire and retread customers. Michelin will supply more than half of the tires and retreads required to support the 450,000 consolidated wheel positions for Yellow Roadway.

Michelin’s nationwide network of MRT franchisees will supply retreads and service for the new contract.

Earlier this month, Yellow Roadway announced that it would not extend its relationship with Bandag for the outsourcing of Roadway Express tire and wheel services, a $37 million agreement that had been in place since 1999.
