    ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Iowa, Wisconsin
 and Arizona state trucking associations honored less-than-truckload freight
 carrier Con-way Freight, a subsidiary of Con-way Inc. (NYSE:   CNW), for its
 safety record and practices.
     The Iowa Motor Truck Association recognized Con-way Freight as the
 state's safest carrier in the Over 10 Million Miles Driven category. The
 Great West- sponsored award was presented at the association's annual
 management conference.
     The Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association at its annual safety awards
 conference awarded Con-way Freight first place in Division IV of the Great
 West Safety Award contest in the Over 5 million Miles Driven category. The
 company was judged on several criteria including its number of
 accident-free miles driven, overall safety ratings and established safety
 programs within the company.
     In Arizona the company was recognized at the annual conference of the
 Arizona Trucking Association as the overall safest carrier in the state and
 received the Grand Trophy award. Con-way was also recognized as the safest
 carrier in the General Commodities-LTL, Four Million Miles and Over Driven
 category. A determining factor for receiving the award was the number of
 reportable department of transportation accidents per million miles a
 company had.

 Manny Gonzales, a 22-year trucking veteran who works in the company's
 Phoenix service center, was named Arizona Driver of the Year. He's worked
