Shipping News Feature

US – The best people to judge the performance of a less than truckload(LTL) carrier like Con-way Freight are third party logistics providers who, owning no equipment of their own, are totally reliant on their subcontractors to enhance their reputation. GlobalTranz, based in Phoenix, Arizona, are a typical example and this week the company, which started trading only in 2003, announced their 2009 National LTL Carrier of the Year award had gone to Con-way Freight.

Like any fast growing company GlobalTranz and its associated site Carrierrate.com have had their fair share of criticism in the past but since Con-way first started assisting the company with its local and national consolidation cargo the improvements to its LTL services have been noted by agents and customers alike.

The award was based on an assessment of Con-way’s on-time pickup and delivery, customer service, billing accuracy, driver skill and overall brand reputation. "Con-way Freight is a top-tier service provider in all respects - from the movement of product to the people behind the scenes who bring the overall solution together," said Michael Bookout, vice president of sales and pricing for GlobalTranz. "With its commitment to our strategic partnership, Con-way Freight helped us mitigate challenges and achieve service goals for our customers. We look forward to experiencing the same success this year."
