YRC Setup

StarShip support for YRC allows you direct access to your YRC negotiated rates. You can generate a PRO#, tender the shipment, and request a pick-up. You can also print YRC-generated labels and BOLs.

YRC Contract

If you don’t already have a contract, you will need to go to my.yrc.com to register. This process can take 2-3 business days. Registered MyYellow.com users do not need to re-register for my.yrc. If you forgot your Username and Password, you can call 1-800-548-0435 to request the information.
