In 1983, Con-way Freight opened its doors with only two regional LTL carriers in the Midwest and western portions of the United States, Con-way Central Express and Con-way Western Express. Soon after, Con-way Freight added two more regional LTL carriers, Con-way Southern Express and Con-way Southwest Express, in efforts to ensure its promise of exceptional day-definite services. Although its beginnings may have been small, Con-way Freight quickly grew into an industry leader and became Conway Inc.’s largest subsidiary.

Today, Con-way Freight operates across the United States and beyond the country's borders to parts of Canada and Mexico, while ensuring the same on-time reliable service promised from the start. Operating from its Ann Arbor, Michigan headquarters, Con-way Freight provides customers with the fastest exception-free delivery possible. With three decades of hard work and dedication, customers are guaranteed nothing less than satisfactory local, regional, and transcontinental services.

Focusing on the customer’s needs, Con-way Freight offers innovative and cost efficient services to make shipping easier. Continually striving to provide the best-in-class service, Con-way Freight is committed to working with state-of-the-art technology that benefits the truck drivers who deliver the freight. Con-way Freight offers hourly pay, varied shifts, and employee benefits that keep the company competitive among truckers. The LTL division guarantees more home time than any of the other divisions, as well as close working relationships with the customers to ensure a pleasant experience for everybody.

From a well-respected reputation to years of experience, Con-way Freight delivers it all. With Con-way Freight, customers and employees never settle for less. To learn more about current employment opportunities and trucking jobs, visit Con-way Freight’s company profile by clicking here.
