Con-way Freight Announces Major Expansion In Fond Du Lac

FOND DU LAC, Wis., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Con-way Freight, a less-than-truckload (LTL) trucking company and subsidiary of Con-way Inc. (NYSE: CNW), today announced a major investment in the Fond du Lac community with plans to build a new, state-of-the-art 96-door, 47,000-square-foot freight service center in the city.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130306/MM72405LOGO)The new $8 million facility will serve as the local hub from which the company will provide daily freight pickup and delivery services, connecting the greater Fond du Lac metropolitan area with one-, two- and three-day service points in Con-way Freight's nationwide network, as well as Mexico and Canada.The company has selected a 21-acre property in Fond du Lac's Fox Ridge Business Park for the new facility. According to Con-way Freight's Director of Operations, John McCutcheon, the site is well suited for the company's needs. A major factor is its convenient access to state Highways 41, 175 and 151, as well as proximity to commercial and industrial shippers in nearby business and industrial parks, the city's revitalized downtown area and its growing retail sector.

The expansion will replace an existing 25-door service center at 736 Morris Street where the company has been for 27 years. Once completed, the expanded facility is expected to provide additional capacity, operating efficiencies and flexibility as it will consolidate smaller service center operations in Fond du Lac, Sheboygan and Neenah into a larger, more cost-effective single facility. The expanded operation in Fond du Lac is expected to employ 100 workers in jobs such as driver sales representatives, operations support, sales, customer service and administration. Con-way Freight currently employs 45 at its existing Fond du Lac location."We are very excited that Con-way has selected Fond du Lac for its new freight operations center," stated Sam Meyer, president of the Fond du Lac City Council. "The Con-way facility will create some excellent jobs for our community while providing important transportation and logistics support services for the local and state economies."
