Con-way Truckload, a full truckload carrier and subsidiary of Con-way
Inc. (NYSE: CNW), today announced it has been named Carrier of the Year
by Sonoco (NYSE: SON) for the third consecutive year. This is the fourth
time Con-way Truckload has earned a carrier award from Sonoco since it

carrier that most excels in all three categories, as voted on by members
of Sonoco's entire logistics department, is named Carrier of the Year. To
earn the distinction, Con-way Truckload uncovered and developed growth
opportunities, worked with Sonoco to help solve immediate needs, and
demonstrated service excellence through on-time delivery, communication
and offering service options.

    "Con-way Truckload has continued to excel in Sonoco's three award
categories," said Donna W. Clinton, strategic sourcing manager,
Logistics, Sonoco. "The key to Con-way's success with Sonoco is the
commitment and support that the entire company provides to our account --
