WILMINGTON, Ohio, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- R+L Carriers announced the launch of a new website aimed at those laid off or facing layoffs after last week's news that XPO Logistics completed its purchase of Con-way Inc.
Conwaylayoff.com was launched in an effort to reach out to those employees from Con-way who may be displaced by the $3 billion acquisition.
While no layoffs were officially announced, during negotiations, XPO management was clear it would eliminate redundancies and look for other ways to "leverage" divisions of the combined companies.
After XPO's purchase of Dublin, Ohio-based Pacer International in March 2014, XPO laid off a number of workers including some top managers, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
R+L Carriers launched Conwaylayoff.com to inform those employees that may have been affected by the merger, of similar opportunities that we have where they may be able to put their skills to work.
