ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Con-Way Transportation Services (Con-Way), a subsidiary of CNF Inc., has withdrawn its proposed application of a 2% surcharge intended to recover a portion of its insurance expenses.
The Insurance Surcharge was to have been effective January 1, 2004 and would have affected shipments moving in its LTL companies: Con-Way Central Express, Con-Way Southern Express, Con-Way Western Express and Con-Way Canada Express.
The company said that feedback from its customers indicated they preferred the rising insurance expense be included in the more traditional method of a general rate increase. The company will follow this more traditional route.
No date was announced for the next general rate increase.
