Con-Way NOW Offers Expedited Truckload
September 28, 2000
Con-Way NOW, the air and ground expedited delivery unit of Con-Way Transportation Services, has added a new dedicated service featuring expedited service levels for truckload quantity shippers.
"We've taken the Con-Way NOW business model of asset-light use of independent business owners, and high technology for shipment management and applied the model to repetitive, dedicated truckload-type moves," said J. Edwin Conaway, president and chief executive officer of Con-Way NOW.
Since late last year the company has been marketing and testing one way and roundtrip services in a variety of equipment configurations, from 53-foot tractor-trailers to 24-foot straight trucks.
