Con-way Inc. Earns Three 2013 SmartWay Excellence Awards From The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Con-way Inc. (NYSE: CNW) was honored with three SmartWay ® Excellence Awards from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) Annual Conference in Denver.

Each of Con-way's three principal operating companies — Con-way Freight, Con-way Truckload and Menlo Worldwide Logistics (Menlo) — were recognized as industry leaders in environmental performance and energy efficiency. Con-way is the first company to have all of its operating units honored with a SmartWay Excellence Award in the same year.

"Earning this award across all lines of business is an outstanding accomplishment that took significant commitment and teamwork across the entire enterprise," said Douglas W. Stotlar, president and chief executive officer, Con-way Inc. "Continually improving our environmental performance makes economic sense for our company and contributes to a more sustainable planet for the future. We hope our actions serve as an example for others to follow."

Con-way Freight has been a SmartWay Partner since 2005 and is a 2008 winner of the SmartWay Excellence Award. Over the past year, the less-than-truckload carrier has continued to adopt technologies and policies to reduce its carbon footprint, including updating its tractors for improved fuel economy and rolling out network efficiency initiatives to maximize equipment utilization and move more freight over fewer miles.

One hundred percent of Con-way Truckload's tractors are equipped with SmartWay-certified fuel-savings and emissions-reduction technologies, while currently 45 percent of its trailing fleet is equipped with the SmartWay-certified UT6 Trailer UnderTray aerodynamic system manufactured by SmartTruck Systems. The company's tractors also have automatic idle shutdown and both tractor and trailing equipment feature low-rolling resistance tires to increase miles per gallon and lower carbon emissions. Con-way Truckload previously won SmartWay Excellence Awards in 2006 and 2007.
