Con-way Freight, a less-than-truckload trucking company and subsidiary of Con-way Inc., opened its $3.7 million Central Texas service center in Robinson, Texas
. The facility will serve as the local hub from which the company will provide daily freight services for commercial and industrial businesses in the greater metropolitan regions of Waco, Robinson and other Central Texas communities.
Replacing an existing 22-door service center in Waco, where the company operated for more than 25 years, the new facility boasts significantly expanded capacity with 48 freight-loading doors and an 18,870 square foot dock. The facility also provides increased capacity, flexibility and operating efficiencies and will enable better service for the hundreds of Central Texas businesses the company serves within a 100-mile radius of the Greater Waco metropolitan area.
"We are proud to make this commitment to the Central Texas area, and invest in capacity and jobs that will allow us to better serve the needs of our customers in Robinson and the Greater Waco metro area," said Greg Lehmkuhl, President, Con-way Freight. "The Central Texas market has experienced significant business growth over the past several years. We have been part of the Waco community for over 25 years, and we are excited to celebrate this major milestone for our employees here as well as our national network."
"We are extremely pleased that Robinson has been selected for this expanded freight operations center," said Bryan Ferguson, Mayor of the City of Robinson. "We embrace this opportunity to welcome Con-way Freight and the economic boost that is so important to the increased vitality of our local, regional and state economies that this business represents."
