Con-Way Central Express, Ann Arbor, MI, has opened a new freight service center at 5070 Carpenter Road, just north of US-12 in Ypsilanti, MI.

CCX has leased the five-acre site and started operations on February 7. The site's existing 4,500 square-foot structure has been refurbished to include 3,520 square feet of docking area with 18 doors and approximately 1,000 feet of office space. The new service center has 20 employees who will move an estimated 250,000 pounds of freight daily.
Richard V. Palazzo, CCX president and ceo described the new terminal as an outgrowth of the fleet's Detroit and Jackson service centers.
Phil Kostoff, a CCX veteran, is the manager of the new facility. He started with CCX in 1992 and was promoted to account executive in 1993 and to service center manager in 1994. He most recently served as manager of CCX's Saginaw, MI, service center.
