Oregon Trucking Associations honors Con-way Freight for safe driving
by Bend Weekly News Sources

BEND, Ore. - Con-way Freight, a less-than-truckload carrier and subsidiary of Con-way Inc., this week announced that it has been recognized for its exemplary safety record and practices by Oregon Trucking Associations (OTA) in a ceremony held in Bend, Oregon. Con-way was awarded a fleet safety plaque for Outstanding Achievement in Highway Safety and received second place honors in the Common Carrier Less-Than-Truckload over 4 Million Miles category. The company received the same award in 2005.

The annual awards were presented at a recent ceremony in Bend, Ore. Winners are selected based on the number of miles driven divided by the number of Department of Transportation (DOT)-reportable accidents. The awards are sponsored by Great West Casualty Company, one of the largest insurers of trucking companies in the United States.

"We are proud to receive these awards from OTA for our drivers' outstanding commitment to safety,” said John G. Labrie, president, Con-way Freight. "Safety is one of Con-way Freight's core values, and we are honored that our drivers are being recognized for their safe driving skills.”

The award recognizes drivers at all four Con-way Freight terminals in Oregon, located in Eugene, Medford, Portland and Portland North. Con-way Freight currently employs 196 employees in the state.

Based in Portland, OTA has been serving the needs of Oregon's trucking industry for more than 50 years. One of OTA's primary goals is promoting and protecting the interests of the Oregon trucking industry before the state's legislature, administrative agencies and courts. OTA also provides its membership with services such as insurance and training to improve the efficiency of their operations. Members of OTA range from owner-operators to suppliers to major carriers.
