Customers Win With Con-way Freight, Con-way Racing and True LTL(SM) Pricing

Colin Braun Takes First Place at Michigan International Speedway as Con-way Freight Launches Revolutionary New Pricing Model

ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwire - June 16, 2009) - Con-way Freight, a less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier and subsidiary of Con-way Inc. (NYSE: CNW), has extended its winning streak with a first place victory at NASCAR's Camping World Truck Series Michigan 200. Driver Colin Braun secured the win behind the wheel of his Con-way Freight True LTL(SM) No. 6 Ford F-150. This win follows on the heels of Con-way Freight's recent recognition as Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.'s 2008 Carrier of the Year, and the company's newly announced and industry-revolutionizing True LTL(SM) Pricing, illustrating the company's continuing momentum.

"This weekend was an exciting win for the Con-way Freight team and for Con-way Freight's customers," Braun said. "Not only was I able to get to Victory Lane, but this was just one in a series of wins for the Con-way Freight team over the last few months. Customers won this weekend, too, with the introduction of True LTL(SM) Pricing, an industry-first capped pricing model for large and heavyweight LTL shipments."

Con-way Freight's vice president of marketing, Bill Wynne, stated, "We are delighted for Colin, Roush Fenway Racing and the whole Con-way Freight organization. Our introduction of True LTL(SM) Pricing has received customer accolades and this win on the racetrack is representative of all the good work going on at Con-way Freight."

Con-way Freight's True LTL(SM) Pricing is the industry's first capped pricing model, offering customers uncomplicated truckload-style pricing for large LTL shipments. "True LTL(SM) Pricing is less expensive than truckload -- eliminating the uncertainty, complexity and waste of previous LTL pricing models," added Wynne.

As an industry-leading carrier, Con-way Freight is committed to achieving results for both its customers and race fans. For more information on True LTL(SM) Pricing or to get a rate quote today, visit
