Shipping News Feature

USA - Con-way Truckload, the U.S. road freight subsidiary of international logistics operator Con-Way Inc., has announced that due to expanding demand they are to reopen their driver orientation site in Phoenix, Arizona.

The site closed in 2009 as a retrenchment measure, but now Con-way intends to recruit 30-50 experienced drivers a month from Arizona, California, Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico.

Drivers joining Con-way undergo a five-day program where they complete the required paperwork and road test, learn about policies and procedures and take the Department of Transportation-mandated physical exam, among other activities.

Prior to the reopening, drivers in the Western states had to conduct this at Con-way’s Lancaster, Texas facility. Now the Phoenix site will allow drivers from the Western states joining Con-way to conduct their orientation closer to home.

"The Phoenix site offers area drivers the opportunity to attend our orientation program in their own backyards before hitting the road with a company recognized for superior service, rewarding career opportunities and strong commitment to safety," said Bert Johnson, senior director of human resources, Con-way Truckload.

"With a growing customer base, competitive pay package and new equipment, there has never been a better time to join Con-way Truckload."
