Con-Way Freight, a subsidiary of Con-Way Inc., was named Carrier of the Year by Wal-Mart for its less-than-truckload service to the retailer’s stores and distribution centers.
Tracy Rosser, vice president of corporate traffic, and Ken Braunbach, director of carrier relations for Wal-Mart, presented the awards in April at Wal-Mart’s annual carrier conference. Con-Way Freight was the only less-than-truckload carrier honored.
Selection criteria for the award included daily on-time service, delivery coverage, transit times, flexibility, commitment and excellence.
The company also was given the Excellence in Servant Leadership award for working with Wal-Mart to make deliveries to areas affected by Hurricane Katrina that otherwise would not have received supplies.
