Con-way Launches New Intermodal Service for North America
February 20, 2013
Con-way Truckload and Con-way Multimodal, two subsidiaries of U.S. freight and global logistics company Con-way Inc., announced the launch of a new North American intermodal product that integrates the capabilities of both organizations to deliver a offering for intermodal shipping.
While the new service will work with all major Class 1 railroads and offer full nationwide service for intermodal moves, it is emphasizing a capacity and differentiated capability for U.S.-Mexico trade.
The integrated service capitalizes on Con-way Truckload’s expertise in Mexico through its CFI Logistica subsidiary, where it has 10 offices, an extensive drayage network and 40 years of in-country experience, and Con-way Multimodal’s resources, systems and freight procurement expertise.
Ultimately, the joint service provides a new solution for customers of both companies for U.S.-Mexico shipping, which is particularly timely as more companies locate manufacturing and distribution operations in Mexico and the need for capacity and reliable cross-border shipping services accelerates.
