  SEARCY, AR, Apr 24 (Marketwire) -- 
Road Systems, Inc. (RSI), a trailer manufacturer and subsidiary of
Con-way Inc. (NYSE: CNW), today announced that it has been honored with
the 2011 Plant Safety Award from the Truck Trailer Manufacturers
Association (TTMA). This is the third time that RSI has received this
honor from TTMA; the company was also an award recipient in 2004 and
2010. RSI was presented with the award last week at the TTMA Annual
Convention in Tuscan, Ariz. Each year TTMA conducts a plant safety
contest to recognize participating plants of TTMA member companies having
the best safety record for the previous year.

    Specifically, RSI won in the "C" category of the award segmented for
plants sized 300,000 man-hours and under. To be considered for the award,
RSI was responsible for providing numerical data in seven areas: deaths,
total lost workday cases, total cases with job transfer or restriction,
days away from work, days of job transfer or job restriction, total
number of other recordable cases and total cases (of injuries). Since
receiving its first Plant Safety Award in 2004, RSI has decreased its
incident frequency rate by more than 80 percent. 

    "Achieving superior safety performance and operational excellence
requires close interaction and informative guidance," said Lynn Reinbolt,
president, RSI. "For that reason, we coach our employees through in-house
behavioral-based education. Being recognized by TTMA for a third time is
a testament to the continued success of this program and the employees
who drive it."

    Under the TTMA Plant Safety program, award winners are selected from
member companies' year-long occupational injury data recorded in
accordance with the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA)
record-keeping requirements. 

    "RSI is known for its tireless commitment to safety," said Jeff Sims,
president, Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association. "For the second
consecutive year, it is a pleasure to honor the plant most deserving of
this award and the hardworking employees behind that crucial, consistent
