FT. WORTH-Con-Way Southern Express, headquartered in Ft. Worth, has cut the ribbon on a 62,000-sf facility in Bessemer, AL, the second opening on a freight-handling center in about a month.

A center also has opened in Richmond, VA. Conway says Bessemer’s 100-door service center will cut transit times in 560 freight delivery lanes in the southeastern US. The center is a key relay point for next-day service, says Con-Way president and CEO John T. Hickerson. The openings are part of an expansion plan that has been adding more than 100 dock doors per month at 400 service centers in the US and Canada.

Con-Way operates 101 service centers for its 7,800 trucking fleet in 12 states in the south and southeastern US. It also delivers coast-to-coast service across North America and is considered one of the south’s leading carriers. The Ft. Worth-based company is a subsidiary of CNF, based in Palo Alto, CA.
