Con-Way NOW Expands Into Southwest
September 20, 1999
Con-Way NOW, the expedited division of Con-Way Transportation, has expanded its dedicated service network into Texas and Arkansas.
New staging areas in the Dallas and Little Rock areas will give customers in those areas faster pickup times. It is the fourth expansion since the company was founded in August 1996 and extends the company's pickup network coverage to more than half of the U.S. Previous expansions by the company were into the Northeast, Upper Midwest and the South.
Con-Way NOW provides time-certain expedited delivery to all 48 of the continental United States as well as Canada.
"This expansion is the result of careful planning that will allow us to maintain our high customer service levels while expanding geographically. Expedited service customers have no margin for error when they hire us," says Ed Conaway, vice president and general manager. The company's pickup network now covers 30 states and the province of Ontario, Canada.
