Con-way Freight announced the launch of Global LTL, which it describes as a comprehensive portfolio of the company’s worldwide LTL services. The company says the new offering was created to help customers understand and benefit from the breadth of Con-way Freight’s global services. Full details on Global LTL now are available at

“The need for shippers to connect LTL service to a worldwide customer and supplier base has increased significantly over the past few years, and Con-way Freight has expanded its suite of services accordingly,” says John G. Labrie, president of Con-way Freight, based in Ann Arbor, Mich. “Global LTL brings all of our worldwide solutions under one umbrella, making it more convenient than ever for shippers to quickly and intuitively locate the LTL service that best meets their needs. We’re always looking for new ways to improve the customer experience, and Global LTL represents just one more step in that direction.”

According to the company, services offered under Global LTL have been created expressly by Con-way Freight or through strategic alliances with global counterparts of equally high-caliber service, performance, quality and expertise; customers now will benefit from the same proven results they experience when shipping within the United States – exception-free delivery, on-time service performance and faster transit times. Additionally, with state-of-the-art online tools and the convenience of a one-stop solution, customers gain visibility and control from country to country and shipment to shipment, the company says.

“Con-way Freight’s goal is to create the most comprehensive worldwide LTL service offering on the market,” Labrie says. “We will continue to explore opportunities to establish or expand our presence to bring customers the end-to-end solutions their shipping requirements dictate.”

Con-way Freight says its Global LTL services include:

  • Service from Europe with Con-way Freight and TNT, one of the world’s most successful and established global express service providers, which offers the advantage of the two companies’ combined networks;
  • Service from Asia to the United States, Canada and Mexico with OceanGuaranteed, which provides more than 60 percent savings over airfreight for shipments from Asia using the expertise of APL Logistics and Con-way Freight;
  • Service from the United States to the Caribbean with TropicalDirect, which unites the LTL reliability of Con-way Freight with the LCL reliability of Tropical Shipping to offer fast, direct service to more than 30 Bahamian and Caribbean ports; and
  • Domestic Offshore service, which provides the same exception-free, on-time and faster performance customers experience when shipping within the contiguous United States.
