How To File a Claim

Filing a Claim

Only the shipper, consignee or third party who has claim or title to the goods may file a claim.

You must file your claim with the origin or destination transportation provider or with the provider on whose line the loss or damage occurred if known.

Online claim filing is available to registered customers. Filing your claim through our online tool ensures that all required information is available to our representatives when you submit your claim. Online filing also allows you to upload supporting documents and provide additional information/comments to our claims personnel.

Additionally, when you are registered, several of the required fields will be filled in for you not only in our claim filing tool, but also in many other online tools.

If you cannot file your claim online, fax or mail it to:

YRC Freight Cargo Claims
PO Box 7903
Overland Park, Ks. 66207
Fax: 866-840-5691 (toll free) or 913-905-8726

Note: If you fax your claim, please do not send a duplicate by U.S. Mail.

Our Handling of Your Claim

After we have received your claim with the proper documentation, we will acknowledge its receipt and attempt to settle it within 30 days.

Investigating some claims may take longer. If your claim cannot be settled within 120 days, YRC Freight will notify you immediately about what you need to do to conclude your claim. YRC Freight will continue to keep you informed at 60-day intervals until your claim is settled.

YRC Freight may refer your claim to other carriers if they were involved in the shipment's transport; we will notify you of this referral. It usually takes longer to investigate a connecting line claim than it does if YRC Freight is the only carrier involved.

If a delay in settling your claim occurs, we ask your understanding. If you think the delay is excessive, feel free to call us at (913) 344-5174 at any time or write to us concerning the status of your claim:

YRC Freight Cargo Claims
PO Box 7903
Overland Park, Ks. 66207

Please include the YRC Freight claim number in all communications.
