Con-Way Central Express Driver Sales Representatives Honored.

ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Three Con-Way Central Express (CCX) driver sales representatives recently received honors for professionalism and safety.

Dan Ferland and Rich Sweeney took top driver honors at the Massachusetts Motor Transportation Association annual awards banquet held March 31 in Marlboro, MA. Ferland, a 31-year trucking veteran, received driver of the year honors. Judging criteria for the award included number of years in the industry, total career miles driven, and community involvement. Ferland has driven over 1.2 million miles during his career and has driven the past 120,000 miles without an accident. He works out of the CCX service center in Dracut, MA.

Rich Sweeney, who works at the company's service center in Springfield, MA was first runner-up to Ferland. He has over 950,000 career miles and has driven 596,000 miles without an accident. In 2000 he won first place, flat bed class, in the Massachusetts Truck Driving Championships. He has been in the industry for 19 years.

The Michigan Trucking Association (MTA) named Dave Scott to serve on its prestigious Michigan Road Team. Scott, who works out of the company's service center in Romulus, MI, is the third CCX driver selected by the MTA for their road team this year. The road team serves as safety ambassadors throughout the state making safety presentations to schools, media and local communities. Scott has logged over 1.2 million miles driven without an accident. He has been in the industry for 13 years. For the past two years he has been the Michigan state driving champion in the Tanker Class and competed in the National Truck Driving Championships sponsored by the American Trucking Associations.

"Dan, Rich and Dave are among the best professionals CCX has on the road today. Their safety records clearly show how much they are dedicated to safe operation and that is of great benefit to Con-Way Central Express and to the motoring public. They deserve these honors," said David S. McClimon, president and chief executive officer of CCX.
