Fellow Racers i NEED help!

Does anybody work for Yellow Freight or know of anybody that does with any pull?
here is what is going on ...,,,Aug. 25 pallet was picked up in Edison N.J with My 2 Fresh FV engines rebuilt being shipped back to Mi. for the Runoff's.

here is how the route was suppose to go home terminal Elizabeth N.J to Akron ohio and then the Talyor Mi.

i have the Pro number but Driver didnt put labels on the pallet (engine boxes) when he picked them up from the shipper. yellow has paperwork but NO Pallet and CAN'T FIND IT.

My shipper went to the terminal this AM to look to see if he could find the shipment its not in the terminal. They think it might have gone to Akron but Akron says they didnt see it nor did taylor. They supposely put a APB out on the freight but its not looking to good. I'm ready to take a road trip to that terminal to look myself.

IF anybody can help.....please

If they cant find these 2 Engines I'm pretty much screwd [help]

I work in transportation but not for Yellow. My two cents is to stay far far away from Yellow/ YRC. I've had decent luck with R and L.

Keep putting the pressure on Yellow, they will find it. They have a pretty big network, it is probably sitting at one of there terminals in the OS&D department.

Good luck.

My bet it's in an unclaimed freight warehouse in NJ.
Without the driver putting the routing stickers on the boxes Edison would have no way of knowing which truck to swing them onto. They probanly sat on the dock for a week and then were moved along with others boxes to a warehouse. There they will set until someone tracks them down and claims them. You would be amazed at the size of the warehouses and the amount of freight in them that will set forever.
I know not what you wanted to hear but keep putting the pressure on them.
I know it doesn't help but I hope they were insured well.

+1 with Charlie.

Here are some ideas...
1) Try to duplicate a picture of the box and send it to them.

2) Go to the place that your truck driver unloaded and search the unclaimed warehouse. Or get someone to do it.

3) Put up a reward (incentive) to find it. Offer a case a beer or whatever.

4)Put picture of the package in employee room or where they clock out. Time sensitive, Reward.

5) You may want to check the local ads, Craigslist, etc. Some time they make it out the back door.

First i just want to Thank everybody that has helped me so far but we need to keep the pressure on them. I have had company's that do business with yellow call and lets say LEAN on them or else. ( thank you to those that have ) and i need more like that. I have had friends, racers etc. call daily about the "Missing Freight" I (we ) cant give up
.

here is what i know so far..... There STILL LOST !

As of today its still in the system Red flagged with 6 people working on it? There has been many things on this that has fallen through the cracks that's for sure. the trailer that delivered the freight to the home terminal is still there so they say. and was checked today for left behind shipments nothing in it.My shipper went to the home terminal Tuesday and walked through it as well as the OSD area. My Son went to the Mi. terminal and walked through, nothing. I was told that 2 people walked the Akron terminal (transfer) yesterday, nothing. They cant even answer some of my questions i have and I'm not in the buisness, that is very frustrating.

i have had conversations with upper management also
every day is a new day with new questions and more phone calls.

more as i get info.

update,

I would like to Thank Steve for going to the Carlisle PA. terminal to walk through it,but we still came up empty handed! Steve did say that when he got there that there were people already looking for it. he said it was a HOT topic. I have had conversations with the VP of that Region yesterday and he seems to be doing a good job thus far. starting from day 1 and checking with every terminal that trailers left that night and the next day, the best so far as for getting anything done.

This also got elevated to the top yesterday by my Co. President which called and wrote an email to the Presidents (yes there are a few) to YRC stating that if this freight isn't found that we will discontinue the use of YRC along with our 28 Distributors throughout the country. I would like to thank the other companies that have stepped up and called them as well. ( we can use more, funny how that gets there attention )

I will just continue to get ready for the Runoff's hoping for the phone call as we go into the Holiday weekend.

well back to work on the new awning to keep my sanity ........

Good luck man. Wish I could help. If they find your stuff, I'd squeeze them for a sponsorship! [Smile]
