Last week the U.S. Department of Justice filed suit against one of the nations largest trucking companies for allegedly duping the Department of Defense out of millions of dollars for years. On Friday, December 14, the U.S. government filed suit in the U.S. District Court in Buffalo, New York, against YRC Freight Inc., Roadway Express Inc., and Yellow Transportation Inc., all owned by YRC Worldwide, after officials say that they were systematically overcharged. The lawsuit alleges that YRC knowingly charged the U.S. government for transporting heavier weights than the loads that they were actually hauling.
