Con-way Freight Honors Driver For Three Decades Of Perfection

Stocks in this article: CNW

MILWAUKEE, Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Con-way Freight, a less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier and subsidiary of Con-way Inc. (NYSE: CNW), today announced that professional driver sales representative, Brian Busch, one of Con-way's first employees when the company was founded in 1983, has surpassed 30 years of driving without an accident or injury — the first in company history to achieve this milestone.

"This year, Con-way Freight celebrated its 30 th anniversary. With us from day one, Brian has demonstrated a professional commitment to safety that has been unwavering in perseverance and remarkable in consistency," said Greg Lehmkuhl, president of Con-way Freight. "There are few in any industry that can look back on an entire career at this level of superior performance. To work a dock and drive a commercial freight truck, in all kinds of conditions over three decades without an accident or injury, is nothing short of amazing. He's a true professional. We are privileged to have Brian on our team and proud to honor him today."

"I never set out to win an award or break any records. Each day I just focused on being safe for myself, our customers and everyone else on the road," said Busch. "Con-way Freight has been my home for my entire career and in the past 30 years, the attention to safety and the support we receive as drivers is the best in the industry. I couldn't imagine driving for anyone else."

In addition to his perfect three-decade safety record, Busch has also driven more than 2 million consecutive miles without an accident — a feat equivalent to driving the circumference of the Earth 83 times. His performance has earned him honors as a Con-way Freight "Distinguished Driver," a special designation conferred upon employees who have driven 1, 2 or 3 million consecutive miles without an accident.
