ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Con-Way Transportation Services has announced a two dollar incentive payment available to all less-than-truckload shippers that submit an electronic bill of lading (e-BOL)via the Con-Way website, .

The carrier says the move underscores its commitment to electronic commerce and adds it believes it is the broadest incentive offering ever made in the LTL industry to support e-business.

The program is the only one of its kind that covers shippers throughout the United States and Canada, the carrier claims.

The $2.00 incentive per each electronic bill of lading will automatically appear as an invoice deduction after net negotiated pricing is applied. The incentive offer is effective October 1 and runs through March 31, 2004.

When submitting the e-BOL, the shipper or third party is encouraged to submit an electronic pickup request, which automatically notifies Con-Way of the pickup,eliminating the customer’s need to make a telephone call.

“E-business is a fact of life in the new millennium. Our website and suite of industry-leading electronic shipping tools already provides our customers cost-saving benefits. This incentive offer is our way of further demonstrating commitment in this arena and encouraging customers to begin enjoying those same benefits,” said Gerald L. Detter, Con-Way president and chief executive officer.

To qualify for the incentive, customers must be registered users of the company’s website. In addition, all e-BOL’s must be submitted by 2:00 p.m. at the location where the shipment will be picked up and the shipment must be ready for pickup by 5:00 p.m. that same day. Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) transactions will not be eligible for the incentive.
