Effective January 1, 2007, the company made changes to its defined benefit pension plans and placed additional emphasis on its primary 401(k) plan, the Con-way Retirement Savings Plan.  At that time, the Company’s contributions included “matching” contributions equal to 50% of the first six percent of employees’ eligible compensation and certain additional discretionary contributions to employees’ 401(k) accounts. The additional contributions, which were based on employees’ years of service, consisted of a “basic” contribution that ranged from 3% to 5% of eligible compensation and a “transition” contribution that ranged from 1% to 3% of eligible compensation. 

Effective in April 2009, due to challenging and uncertain economic conditions, the Company suspended or limited its various contributions to the Con-way Retirement Savings Plan.  The matching and transition contributions were suspended and the basic contribution was limited to no more than 3% of an employee’s eligible compensation.

As general economic conditions have improved, the Company has now elected to restore the suspended basic and transition contributions under the Con-way Retirement Savings Plan, effective for periods after October 1, 2011.  Although dependent on employee count and turnover, the estimated cost per quarter will be approximately $5 million.  


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
