In 1924, A.J. Harrell created a small bus and taxi business, which was purchased in 1952 by George E. Powell Sr. Following this transaction, the company was restructured to serve more customers across the nation. In the early 2000s, the company acquired a roadway company and formed Yellow Roadway Corporation. The company continued to grow and after moving into international markets, in particular China, it changed its name to YRC Worldwide. True to its name, the truckload company now serves customers all over the globe.
