For almost a century, the highways and byways of America were graced by trucks bearing the iconic Yellow Corporation insignia. As one of the nation’s most prominent trucking companies, Yellow’s sudden shutdown sent shockwaves throughout the industry and the broader economy. The question now reverberating through the corridors: Is Yellow’s demise indicative of a more significant economic downturn on the horizon? Every taxpayer, knowingly or unknowingly, held a stake in Yellow’s journey. Thanks to the Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Yellow Corporation secured a hefty $700 million from the $735.9 million reserve earmarked for national security loans.
