The U.S. government is pointing to national security concerns in bailing out trucker YRC Worldwide Inc. The Treasury Department is lending the troubled trucker $700 million in coronavirus stimulus funding, the WSJ's Kate Davidson and Jennifer Smith report, and taking a 29.6% stake in the business under a Cares Act provision for companies deemed essential to national security. YRC is the fifth-largest U.S. trucking company, moving goods for big shippers like Walmart Inc. and Home Depot Inc. and handling 68% of less-than-truckload services for the Defense Department. One of the few big unionized carriers left, YRC has struggled under heavy debt and was trying to turn its business around when the coronavirus pandemic crashed freight volumes. Stephens Inc. analyst Jack Atkins says the federal loan "removes the risk of a bankruptcy" for YRC, which plans to use the funding to make up missed pension and healthcare payments and to refresh its aging fleet.

ECONOMY & TRADE

Don't expect the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement to usher in a new era of North American trade peace. Ongoing tensions over tariffs and other issues that prolonged negotiations are complicating the rollout of the updated version of the North American Free Trade Agreement, the WSJ's Josh Zumbrun reports, and ramping up uncertainty for cross-border supply chains. Lingering sore points include rules still being finalized that require auto makers to keep more of their factories in the U.S. and Canada, and concern that the U.S. could impose new levies on metals as aluminum imports from Canada surge. The USMCA keeps much of the groundwork laid by NAFTA but adds provisions for digital trade and safeguards meant to bolster standards in Mexican factories. U.S. labor groups worry Mexico won't follow through on those requirements, while lawmakers from farm states question how far Canada will go to open up its dairy market.

SUPPLY CHAIN STRATEGIES

Coca-Cola Co. is getting out of the chilled delivery business. The drinks giant is discontinuing its Odwalla juice brand and the 230-truck refrigerated fleet that delivers Coke's fresh beverages to stores, the WSJ's Jennifer Maloney writes, one of the biggest moves yet by food companies resetting their supply chains by narrowing product lineups. Supply-chain disruptions and volatile swings in consumer demand during quarantines are prompting food and consumer-goods makers to rethink their offerings and prune underperforming products. Coke said declining smoothie sales contributed to challenges for Odwalla. The decision to pull the plug will cut about 300 jobs and dismantle a network that also carried Coke's fresh orange juice and single-serve Fairlife milk to retailers. Those trucks will be sold and Coke will seek other routes to market for the remaining products.
