Con-way Freight has released a free smart phone application and dedicated website designed for mobile devices.

The Con-way Freight Tools application allows customers to access online shipping services including shipment tracking, rate quotes, document viewing, and locating a service center, all through the new website. The application is available for iPhone and Android phones with Blackberry compatibility coming soon.

The mobile website is a simplified version of Con-way Freight’s (NYSE: CNW) commercial website, www.con-way.com/freight, with the mobile version optimized for quick uploading and seamless, responsive functionality on a smart phone. Simplified features on the mobile site allow customers to register as web users, sign up for proactive alerts and other information, and to get news updates.

“We’re continually examining opportunities to make it easier for customers to do business with us — over whatever platform they find most convenient and efficient,” said John G. Labrie, president, Con-way Freight. “These new tools will be very useful to our customers on the go, putting accurate, up-to-date information about their shipments and tools that help streamline the management of their shipping needs right in the palm of their hands.”

To get the Con-way Freight Tools app, a customer can download it directly from their phone’s app store. Once downloaded, they should go to the phone’s settings and enter their Con-way Freight web registered username and password. They can then launch the app. Access to the mobile website is available at www.con-way.com/freight in their smart phone’s Internet browser address window to be redirected.
