Con-way Freight, a less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier and subsidiary of Con-way Inc., has been named LTL Carrier of the Year by Ryder System Inc.
A leading national third-party logistics provider, Ryder operates a multi-carrier transportation network, which manages thousands of shipments daily in North America for hundreds of shippers. Con-way Freight is one of 70 primary carriers engaged by Ryder to provide LTL freight services.
Ryder holds its core carriers to some of the most stringent quality and service performance standards in the trucking industry. Con-way Freight won top LTL carrier honors in Ryder’s annual evaluation by achieving the highest composite score across four key measurement categories: on-time performance, exception-free handling, accurate and on-time invoicing and customer service/solution development support. It was the second consecutive year in which Con-way Freight scored highest among Ryder’s LTL carriers.
“We are certainly proud to once again be recognized for delivering a consistent service experience that helps Ryder excel for its customers — and that clearly sets us apart from the competition,” said Joseph M. Dagnese, president of Con-way Freight. “It’s an honor to receive this award and a testament to the quality, value and focus on continuous improvement our team delivers to Ryder and its clients every day.”
“Much of what we do for our customers is made possible thanks in part to the support we receive from our carriers,” said Dave Belter, vice president and general manager of Transportation Management for Ryder. “We thank and congratulate our winners for going above and beyond to ensure that goods are moved in a safe, timely, and efficient manner.”
