AURORA, Ill., and DALLAS – November 29, 2011
Con-way Multimodal, a division of Con-way Inc.’s (NYSE:CNW) operating unit Menlo Worldwide Logistics, today announced that on Dec. 5, it will open a new branch office in Frisco, Texas, a rapidly growing suburb of Dallas.
Located at 3211 Internet Blvd., Suite 100, the Frisco office is the fifth Con-way Multimodal location to be added to the company’s existing network of operations in Ann Arbor, Mich.; Portland, Ore.; Aurora, Ill.; and, most recently, Bentonville, Ark. Con-way Multimodal arranges third-party carrier services for over-the-road, intermodal, flatbed, heavy haul and specialized transportation for freight shipments.
One manager and six employees will serve customers out of the 6,800-square-foot facility, with plans to have between 40 and 45 employees on staff by the end of 2015.
“Dallas is one of the top freight brokerage markets in the country and establishing a presence here was an important step in our growth plan,” said Tommy Barnes, president, Con-way Multimodal. “We’re not only able to better serve current customers in the area, but we can foster new relationships as well. In addition, as with our Bentonville location, we can recruit new talent from graduates of local universities known for some of the strongest logistics programs in the country. It’s all about elevating our service and expertise.”
In addition to providing customers with access to third-party carrier services, Con-way Multimodal customers can also take advantage of synergies with Menlo Worldwide Logistics and its sister companies, Con-way Freight and Con-way Truckload.
