Companies Recognized for Exemplary Service, Performance and Commitment to Customers
SAN MATEO, Calif. - October 13, 2010
Con-way Inc. (NYSE: CNW) today announced that two of its operating companies — Con-way Freight and Con-way Truckload — have been selected by Inbound Logistics for its 2010 Top 100 Motor Carriers list. This marks the second consecutive appearance in the annual compilation for Con-way Truckload, and fourth for Con-way Freight. The full list is available in the publication’s September issue.
“Transportation buyers are always looking for companies that work to cut costs while providing superior service and on-time delivery — particularly during challenging economic times,” said Felecia Stratton, editor, Inbound Logistics. “Con-way Freight and Con-way Truckload have shown the ability to achieve those goals, and therefore qualified as two of the nation’s 100 finest motor carriers.”
Every year, U.S. freight carriers apply for inclusion on the Inbound Logistics list by submitting information including services offered, geographies served and performance statistics. For 2010, they also had to include an essay on recent industry trends such as capacity and driver shortages. More than 250 companies applied to appear on this year’s list.
“Both Con-way Freight and Con-way Truckload maintain the highest commitment to service and on-time performance, and it is truly gratifying to see both companies selected for this recognition,” said Douglas W. Stotlar, president and chief executive officer, Con-way Inc. “I commend the employees of each organization for their dedication, and thank them for the hard work that brought us this honor.”
The Inbound Logistics editorial staff chooses the Top 100 Motor Carriers by evaluating material submitted by entrants, as well as through additional research and personal interviews with shippers, drivers, facility managers, trucking company executives and others in the industry.
