Con-way Truckload Named a 2009 Top 100 Motor Carrier by Inbound Logistics

Company Recognized for High Levels of Service and Customer Satisfaction

JOPLIN, MO--(Marketwire - December 17, 2009) - Con-way Truckload, a full truckload carrier and subsidiary of Con-way Inc. (NYSE: CNW), today announced that it has been named one of Inbound Logistics' Top 100 Motor Carriers. Sister company Con-way Freight was also included on the list, which was published in a recent issue of Inbound Logistics.

"Given the challenging economy, it is more important than ever for motor freight carriers to be proactive in finding solutions for their customers," said Felecia Stratton, editor, Inbound Logistics. "Con-way Truckload has proven to be an intuitive resource for shippers by implementing new service offerings and taking the lead to offer suggestions on cost-cutting measures. This, combined with the company's consistently high level of customer service, earned them a place on Inbound Logistics' 2009 Top 100 Motor Carrier list."

Each year, motor carriers that want to be included on the Inbound Logistics list complete a questionnaire on services offered and geographies served, as well as opinions on topics such as increasing pricing pressures, shrinking capacity and greatest challenges. This year, more than 300 companies participated in the survey.

"It is an honor to be included in this list of top motor carriers," said Herb Schmidt, president, Con-way Truckload. "Con-way Truckload has undertaken several initiatives this year to enhance our service levels, including the launch of Con-way Truckload Regional, which enables us to better meet our customers' short-haul needs. This recognition clearly reflects the hard work of our employees to better serve our customers."

The Inbound Logistics editorial staff selected the Top 100 Motor Carriers by evaluating questionnaires, doing research and conducting personal interviews with shippers, trucking company executives, facility managers, drivers and others in the industry.
