Con-way Truckload announced that it has been recognized by Sonoco as the recipient of its 2009 Prospector Award. Con-way Truckload received the award in recognition of its proactive approach to creating transportation solutions and growing its business with Sonoco, one of the largest diversified global packaging companies.
Each year, Sonoco presents its Prospector Award to a core carrier that best demonstrates the ability to uncover and develop growth opportunities with Sonoco. Since Con-way Truckload and Sonoco began working together in 2008, Con-way Truckload not only achieved core carrier status but also increased its business with the company substantially by proposing innovative ideas, visiting company facilities and generating creative alternatives for moving freight.
“This accomplishment is a testament to Con-way Truckload’s innovative, detailed and focused approach to building their relationship with Sonoco,” says Jason Ruble, Sonoco logistics sourcing manager. “They came to us with new ideas, and crafted thoughtful methods of execution that also reflected the difficulty of implementing change. Their dedication to our business certainly warrants this award.”
“We are very happy that Sonoco Products has recognized our efforts and superior service,” says Pete Montaño, vice president of sales for Con-way Truckload. “It’s a tribute to all of our employees who work diligently to support Sonoco. We look forward to fostering the relationship over the years to come.”
