truckToday Con-way Inc. announced the launch of its new “Women in Trucking” web video series, showcasing life as a professional woman truck driver.

The series will follow two of Con-way’s top professional drivers: Ina Daly, driver sales representative for Con-way Freight, the less-than-truckload carrier subsidiary of Con-way Inc., and Stephanie Klang, professional driver for Con-way Truckload, the company’s full truckload carrier subsidiary.

“Professional truck drivers fuel our economy and are committed to the highest standards of safety,” said Bert Johnson, vice president of human resources at Con-way Truckload, which provides regional and long-haul full-truckload transportation throughout North America. “This series will provide a view into the lives of some of the most accomplished drivers in our industry, and hopefully break down some of the negative stereotypes of truck drivers while also educating people about a viable and rewarding career option.”

The series will be featured on both Con-way Truckload’s and Con-way Freight’s YouTube channels, with regular new episodes filmed by Daly and Klang in their daily routines.

“Truck driving can provide a variety of career paths, depending on a person’s aspirations and experience,” saidTerry Riordan, director of human resources at Con-way Freight, which through over 400 locations provides day-definite less-than-truckload shipping services across North America. “Whether it’s interacting with customers daily on pickup and delivery routes or moving freight at night between cities, these are solid, reliable jobs that support thousands of families. Professionals like Ina and Stephanie prove that women not only can be successful in this business, but can reach the highest levels of performance excellence and achievement.”

Both Daly and Klang have served as Captains of the American Trucking Associations’ “America’s Road Team,” a prestigious group of the industry’s safest drivers who serve 2-year terms as industry safety ambassadors promoting highway safety. Both also have surpassed two million consecutive, accident-free miles in their careers and have been honored by Con-way with the CEO Constellation Award, which is the company’s highest employee award for professional accomplishment, leading by example and demonstrating the company’s core values.
