Con-way Freight announced today, April 21, that it has been named by Wal-Mart Stores Inc. as its 2007 LTL Carrier of the Year. The world’s largest retailer notified Con-way of the award following an annual performance evaluation of its trucking and logistics services providers.
Con-way, based in Ann Arbor, Mich., says it was named Wal-Mart’s top provider of LTL freight transportation services based on an evaluation of key performance criteria, including daily on-time delivery performance, market coverage, transit times, claims prevention, effective communication, ease of doing business and customer service.
Wal-Mart launched its carrier award program in 1997 to recognize the outstanding contributions of its transportation providers in categories including truckload, LTL, small package, produce and intermodal. The company previously honored Con-way Freight as its 2005 LTL Carrier of the Year and for its leadership in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
