Con-Way Transportation Services Inc. has been awarded an Enterprise Value Award (EVA) byCIO magazine for the company's automation of its linehaul system.

The automated LTL freight operations system optimizes personnel, equipment and individual routes for the nighttime movement and timely relay of freight shipments in the United States and Canada.
