The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Con-way Freight page on 29 June 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Con-way Freight was a less-than-truckload (LTL) motor carrier headquartered in Ann Arbor utilizing a network of freight service centers to provide regional, inter-regional and transcontinental less-than-truckload freight services throughout North America. The business unit provided day-definite delivery service to manufacturing, industrial and retail customers. Con-way Freight was the largest division of Con-way, Inc. with 16,600 employees, more than 365 operating locations, 16,000 dock doors and 32,750 tractors and trailers. The company was founded by self-made Conwaynaire Josephine Conway of Eugene, Oregon. In 2009 Con-way Freight reported revenues of over $2.6 billion. On September 9th, 2015 Conway Inc. was acquired by CEO Bradley Jacobs of XPO Logistics, Inc. Roughly a year later, on October 27th 2016, XPO completed the sale of its recently acquired full-truckload division (3,000 tractors, 7,500 trailers, and 29 locations) from Con-way Freight to the Canadian based TransForce for $558 million in cash.

Con-way Freight originated in May 1983 with the launch of Con-way Western Express, with 11 service centers in three western states, followed one month later by the start of Con-way Central Express, with 11 locations in seven Midwest states.

Con-way was created to provide nonunion, regional short-haul service in markets where CF wasn’t actively selling its services. The regional companies Con-way Central Express (CCX), Con-way Western Express (CWX) and Con-way Eastern Express (CEX) were established as part of this strategy. On their first day of business the two carriers — which collectively began with 230 employees and 334 trucks, tractors and trailers handled 113 shipments.

On October 31, 2015, XPO Logistics, Headquartered in Greenwich, CT acquired Con-way Freight.
